Emergency management, Project management, Hurricane Katrina (2005) -- Government policy -- Evaluation


In this report, we analyze emergency management as a discipline within project management using the federally coordinated response to Hurricane Katrina as a case study. This report outlines the field of emergency management, the structure of federally coordinated emergency management, and how the processes involved relate to project management. Additionally, the report includes an analysis of the federal response to Hurricane Katrina in terms of project management concepts and a review of changes to the emergency management system in the aftermath.
