Drawing from the simulation activity, each student will have to hand in an individual written report (word limit 2000 words) to include a detailed analysis of the case, a robust (in terms of content), well-structured and academically well sustained SIA/ ERA/Auditing report on the specific given event/situation, with a sound and well-sustained set of recommendations and to include a reflective analysis of the overall experience. The use of academically reliable sources, as well as reference to the appropriate laws, regulations, policies, frameworks, standards and any other relevant tools are essential. Adequate referencing and Bibliography using the referencing system in use is also required.
I will play a simulation activity in class. I will be the CEO and my classmate as a consultant.
The simulation is based on the following cases:
• Train Carrying Oil in North Dakota Ablaze After Derailing
• The Quebec town of Lac-Megantic. Where a runway train hauling 72 carloads of crude oil derailed, triggering an explosion that killed 47 people and destroyed 30 buildings.
Company based on: BNSF
Based on the power point in the attachment, I have to write a report as CEO more like a Self reflection approach doesn’t have to take position.. I learnt I had to use real life experience or research because … I don’t have to take a position just a reflectiom about all solutions the consultant gave to me.
The work is based in I real case but we have to adapted. So the name of both companies are unreal and some data too.
