3 June Perspectives Little work prior to 2001 Researchers have applied both theoretical & logic models based on familiarity Comparative analysis limited Limited community of scholars Example: WADM Utstein Model almost unknown in US

4 June My work Competency development After-action reports Criteria development Exercise evaluations

5 June Competency development Primarily qualitative National perspective Individual state or school perspective Competing sets confuse practice field Needs Organizational ownership Concurrence on division of field

6 June After-action reports Quarantellis work most helpful Focus on management & decision-making Does not fit HSEEP or other DHS lists Usually not published

7 June Criteria development Primarily qualitative Requested by federal manager but not owned by agency Resisted by agencies Not used by DHS Part of review now underway by ASPH

8 June Exercise evaluations Only as good as clarity of exercise objectives and precision of observations Moving toward quantifiable information Standardization of formats emerging
