Measuring disaster resilience: The impact of hurricane sandy on critical infrastructure systems

Tina Comes, Bartel A. Van de Walle
2014 International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management  
For the quantitative modelling approach, which aims at measuring the resilience of individual CIs, we focus on two CIs of fundamental importance for disaster response: transportation and power supply.  ...  Therefore, a paradigm shift in disaster risk management is needed: instead of focusing on predicting events, resilience needs to be improved as a basis for adequate response to any event.  ...  Furthermore, we are grateful to the team of the Disaster Resilience Lab and its supporters for inspiring work connecting research and the practice of disaster response.  ...

Sujin K. Horwitz, Irwin B. Horwitz
2007 Journal of Management  
Over the past few decades, a great deal of research has been conducted to examine the complex relationship between team diversity and team outcomes.  ...  In particular, the effects of task-related and bio-demographic diversity at the group-level were meta-analyzed to test the hypothesis of synergistic performance resulting from diverse employee teams.  ...  Recently, two paradigms of the curvilinear models of team diversity/similarity have been postulated to investigate the effects of member diversity on teamwork: the inverted U model and the upright U model  ...
