Case Study Broadwater
DNRC Case Study Broadwater
Scenario using SDS
0806 - ..
0807 - Summary/Objective
080801 - Follow up ref SDS 22 0000, ref SDS 19 0000.
080803 - We discussed doing a case study on Broadwater for lessons learned to
080804 - support future management and evauate methods.
080806 - On 941020 Wayne asked about what went wrong? ref SDS 3 6007
080808 - Wayne recalled that Walt has mentioned he would like to do a report on
080809 - Broadwater to review the work of Tudor, Sletten and Voith.
080811 - [On 990316 developed history for case study. ref SDS 23 4410]
080813 - Wayne feels he does not have enough time to prepare a case study
080814 - because of his present work and his activity with church.
080816 - The DNRC Director may not approve doing a case study.
080818 - We considered the challenge of writing case studies to help ourselves
080819 - and future generations. I mentioned the tremendous struggle that must
080820 - have been involved in writing the Bible, which is a series of case
080821 - studies about seemingly innocuous events. Yet, in the fullness of
080822 - time and in the broader context of other events, they become very
080823 - valuable lessons of life.
080825 - Wayne feels a case study might be justified if it resulted in an
080826 - article that gave the District publicity and explained the status of
080827 - Broadwater.
080829 - We considered asking Walt to develop some initial ideas. Since he is
080830 - enthused about a report, he may be willing to squeeze in the time for
080831 - this effort.
080833 - We considered asking Sarah to write her perspective. Wayne said Sarah
080834 - may not be willing to consider Broadwater matters in light of her
080835 - prior relationship with Walt. She is now at the Justice Department
080836 - and has a new boy friend or husband. Wayne feels Sarah would not want
080837 - to re-open her experience on Broadwater.
080839 - We considered the potential for engaging Sarah based on the prospect
080840 - of a positive article. Given the significant effort she made to help
080841 - the project, possibly in the right circumstances, she would be willing
080842 - to write a few pages expressing her perspective now that some time has
080843 - passed. It need not be presented as though Walt is involved. Since
080844 - Sarah likely wrote a number of legal briefs on the background of
080845 - Broadwater for the arbitration hearings, she would be a good source
080846 - for getting some initial language. Wayne said the briefs she prepared
080847 - have been archived and he does not have time to retrieve them.
080849 - We considered that Sarah may have some of this material on a home
080850 - computer or in her garage at home.
080852 - If Wayne can get some initial input from Walt and from Sarah then he
080853 - might be able to write a few pages of his own perspective. He could
080854 - then send this stuff to me and I will write a comprehensive case
080855 - study.
080857 - From the case study, we can do a summary article for publication.
080858 - Wayne can then submit these materials to Sarah and to Walt for any
080859 - edit suggestions they have.
080861 - Wayne said DNRC does not have the budget to pay Welch for this effort.
080863 - I explained my interest to develop a case study to show the benefits
080864 - of Communication Metrics. I related the discusson with Merrill and
080865 - with Pete Hady where each thought the other person's department needed
080866 - help, but their department did not, ref SDS 22 line 294.
080868 - We reviewed Tudor's recommendation to terminate the Welch contract
080869 - prior to completion of the Sletten contract, and the problems that
080870 - occurred during Voith's commissioning, ref SDS 1 line 41.
080872 - Wayne will consider this project and let me know what he decides.
080874 - [On 990316 developed history for case study. ref SDS 23 4410]
