Major Incident Case Analysis

Major Incident Case Analysis. The purpose of this assignment is to apply concepts reflected in the course text, discussions, and other literature sources you access to review and analyze an actual incident.

You will build your analysis over the duration of the course.  The first submission (Part 1) is your topic selection (Week 3), followed by Part 2 (described below) in Week 6, and the final completed analysis (described below) at the end of Week 8.  The final paper should be 8 – 10 pages long.  The Bow-Tie Model will serve as the basis for your analysis.    

As you develop your paper, use the following format and be sure to follow APA formatting guidelines.

  3. Processes
  4. Products

Date Due: Submit Part 2 no later than midnight at the end of Week 6.
