A Health Department report at a large US city has the mayor and her staff worried. One homeless person has contracted plague! Staff employees who work at the mayor’s office building have noticed that the mayor and her senior associates are worried. There have been late meetings and the level of activity has increased. She has cancelled several scheduled events. No direct indication of a problem has been shared with the press. There are rumors that members of the press are calling “friends” in city government to find out what is happening. You have just come from a meeting of your department, The City Department of Strategic Planning. Your job is to develop a comprehensive plan to handle a plague epidemic. So far only one person has contracted the deadly ailment. So, technically, no crisis has actually occurred yet. Here is a summary of what was discussed at the meeting: · The homeless person who has plague has been in the city for about two weeks. He was living in the desert in New Mexico before he jumped on a freight train and wound up in your city. · He was living in Skid Row with about fifty other people in a “flop house.” · The flop house has been in legal trouble. This includes no exit lights, fire alarms not maintained, no sprinklers installed, complaints about mice, loud music, fights and garbage laying around the sidewalk. A recent police raid resulted in three arrests of residents for various crimes including outstanding warrants. · No local hospitals have a record of treating a case of the plague. · A small quantity of serum is stocked in a city storage facility, but it may have expired. Nobody in city government has ever seen the plague. · The city hospitals owe a large sum to several pharmaceutical companies that manufacture plague medication. · No one in city government has ever dealt with a major epidemic of any kind. · This deals with the plague, not the corona virus. Your boss – the head of this department – says he wants a complete plan that spells out: · Specific steps to handle a possible epidemic · Timeline to include deadlines · Costs · Manpower Needs: This should spell out number of people and types of skills · A high quality plan that the city can be proud of The plan must also identify where may be available from. The meeting discussed, · Local hospitals, city and private · Pharmaceutical companies · International doctors who have dealt with this disease · Facilities for treating those who contract the plague · Gloves and other protective equipment · A plan for controlling information. “Avoiding panic” was mentioned. · Your boss stressed that the solution must be internal, not simply from Washington. You were selected for this job because you have an MBA. MBAs are supposed to know how to devise a plan. Even though you have an MBA, you have never held a position of management responsibility in which success or failure depend on you. Your boss added these instructions: · Focus on solving the problem not describing it. · We must look competent, able to handle a difficult, unexpected crisis. · Do not cede control to federal authorities. Even if that happens, they will be using local hospitals, doctors and other resources. · Don’t forget obvious issues, for example, preventing current medical personnel from getting the plague; avoiding strong police action, which might cause people who had contact with the plague sufferer to leave town. causing panic by posting notices and discussing plague openly in the news or elsewhere. Addition instructions: · Focus on creating a good plan. Do not define the history of plague! · A specific plan does not describe the city’s strengths and weaknesses. It does not dump SWOT analysis on a medical crisis. It uses their strengths and weaknesses to build a plan for the future. · Once you get a clear sense of what has to be done, give they should take to prevent or lessen the crisis. · Note that preventing a crisis calls for one type of action. Lessening the severity of the crisis calls for a different type of actions. · Make sure the plan is actionable. That means it is laid out over a period of time with clear direction. For example, month 1, do such and such. Month two, follow with these specific actions. · Apply concepts from the course and feedback from assignments. · give superficial advice they could find on an Internet blog such as “acquire serum.” This is too general to be ful. soppy advice such as “work with the government.” · bore city management with plague history or Wikipedia drivel. You will lose credibility. · Read the case five times to understand your job.

Frequently asked questions
Is your service confidential?
When you place an order with our company, we ask you to provide us with such personal information as your name, phone number, and email address. We need this data to keep you updated on the important things related to your order or account.
Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?
We complete each paper from scratch and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check it for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism detection systems that are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.
We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness.
Is there a money-back guarantee? If yes, how can I receive a refund?
You can certainly get your money back in several cases. You can receive a full refund if you have paid for your order twice or if you have placed two identical orders. In case your paper was late or the quality of the paper does not correspond to your expectations, you will get compensation for these issues.
Do you keep a database of pre-written essays?
No, we do not have such a database. All papers you order from us are written from scratch. This means your paper is unique and has never been published before—neither will it be published after we deliver it to you.
When will my custom paper be done?
While placing an order with WritersHub, you can choose a period of time within which a paper should be delivered to you. The countdown until the specified deadline starts automatically from the moment we receive your payment in our system. For example, if you pay for your order at 6pm on Monday and choose a 3-day delivery option, you will receive your custom paper by 6pm on Thursday.
Remember that a writer needs a sufficient amount of time in order to conduct thorough research. Therefore, please choose the most suitable deadline when you place an order. Moreover, the later you need your paper to be delivered to you, the cheaper it will be. Thus, you will be able to save your money while your writer will have enough time to work on your order and ensure its quality.
Make sure you upload all the additional materials at the very beginning. If you fail to do that, the deadline for your order will be postponed as well.
I haven’t received my custom paper by the deadline. What should I do?
Let us know immediately about that. You can do it by writing a message on Facebook or email us. Our support manager will carefully examine your order and will assist you with it right away. The reasons for late delivery may vary from time to time. It can happen that you have entered a wrong email address or your spam filter does not allow you to receive emails from us. It is also possible that the writer is waiting for your reply and can not continue working without your assistance, or we are checking the work for plagiarism. Whatever the case may be, contact us if you have any problems with getting your order on time.
