Normal Decision Making Versus Crisis Decision Making

In preparation for this discussion, review the first three required videos for this week. These videos set the stage for your understanding of the readings and will help you understand the relationships between responding agencies and the potential personality conflicts during emergencies.

Explain the difference between normal and crisis decision making. Describe how decision makers use the “Boyd Cycle” to make timely and effective crisis decisions? Why is the Boyd Cycle effective when making decisions in a crisis situation like responding to hazardous events and determining an appropriate response?

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
