Navigating the Storm: After Action Reviews in Response to Current NSW Floods

As NSW faces severe flooding, businesses are confronted with urgent challenges. In this critical time, After Action Reviews (AARs) emerge as a vital tool for learning and adaptation amidst the crisis.

The ongoing NSW floods highlight the immediate need for AARs, especially in the context of the wet season’s unpredictability. Here’s why they are crucial right now:

Capturing what went well: Often recording what went well is overlooked. It is important to understand what staff did well during the emergency and replicate the methods and embed these practices into organisational processes and procedures.

Understanding Crisis Challenges: The current floods showcase the severity of wet-season challenges. AARs provide a platform to analyse these challenges, identify vulnerabilities, and develop resilient strategies.

Optimising Response Resources: Floods disrupt resource availability and utilisation. AARs evaluate response strategies, enabling businesses to optimise resource allocation and maintain operational continuity during emergencies.

Enhancing Emergency Protocols: Floods pose significant safety risks. AARs facilitate a thorough review of emergency protocols, ensuring organisations are well-prepared to protect their workforce and assets during crises.

Following the event of the current NSW floods, businesses aspire not only to recover but also to emerge stronger and more resilient. AARs offer a pathway to achieving this resilience by leveraging lessons learned and implementing targeted improvements.
