write 400–600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

Note: There are 2 parts to this assignment.

Part 1

You will be assigned a resource allocation strategy early this week to craft a united response to the questions below. Prepare a miniature brief that describes your assigned resource allocation strategy and develop an illustration to aid in your explanation. 

Refer to the Lower Colorado Dams Network as the network to which you will allocate your resources using the model you were assigned last week. You have $30 million to allocate to the Lower Colorado Dams Network.

Using the allocation model assigned to your small group last week, each group should present its strategy for how these dollars would be apportioned. Be true to the allocation strategy’s concept, and answer the following questions:

  • What specific monies will you assign to which assets, links, network components, or sector elements? Explain how your allocation model guided your decisions.
  • What strengths does your allocation model have to allocating resources to this network? Be comprehensive and specific in your answer.
  • What shortcomings or detriments does your allocation model reveal for allocating resources to this network? Be comprehensive and specific in your answer.
  • Provide 2–3 modifications to this model that would enhance it for allocating resources to this network. If you believe this model is ideal and no modifications are necessary, explain why you believe this.

Part 2

Draft an outline of your Unit 4 IP Key Assignment draft for peer review.  In crafting your outline, return to the discussions and assignments from the earlier phases of this course. There is no specific order for your final product (Key Assignment), but you should demonstrate good organization skills and comprehensive inclusion of the main elements. You may also look at the illustrations or M.U.S.E. items to be reminded of components to include. For the outline you will share here, be as specific and detailed as possible. For example, do not simply state “Risk Assessment.” Instead (as an example), state:

Risk Assessment of the Hoover Dam as the most critical node in the Lower Colorado Dams Network.

  • This asset is chosen as most critical because…
  • Threats considered include erosion, user demand, earthquake, terrorist attack…
  • Consequences considered include loss of all reserved water in dam, impact on agriculture, damage or destruction to lower dams…
  • The most likely “Threats” include…

Remember, this is an example of being comprehensive and specific; your node, priorities, conditions, and so forth may necessitate other elements in your outline.
