Post-Katrina project very muddled
Founding Principal/Fellow (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – March 14, 2018
Worked within a very corrupt management structure in the City of New Orleans (CONO). Engaged six months after Katrina hit New Orleans. Responsible for planning processes for subsequent hurricane events--very bad initial situation, e.g., the IT computer systems were located in the basement of the official state government building, obviously subject to flooding in case of a hurricane. Focused on the processes of setting up backup plan for coping with another hurricane by moving IT support to a remote facility, evacuating the city including accommodating pets (major issued with Katrina) and people with bed-ridden ailments.
Also carried out other projects with Slipglass.
Good team of contractors to work with.
Lack of trust in CONO management.
