  23. 23. DISCUSSION QUESTIONS 1. BASED ON WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED IN THIS CHAPTER, WHAT DID WAL-MART DO THAT MANY OTHER FIRMS AND GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS DID NOT DO TO DEAL EFFECTIVELY WITH THE HURRICANE? EXPLAIN YOUR ANSWER. 2. HOW SHOULD CORPORATE PLANNERS HANDLE SITUATIONS SUCH AS KATRINA BEFORE THEY ACTUALLY OCCUR? EXPLAIN YOUR ANSWER. 3. ANOTHER COMPANY THAT WAS PRAISED FOR ITS WORK IN THE AFTERMATH OF KATRINA WAS FEDERAL EXPRESS. IT HAS A POLICY CALLED “FLEXIBILITY PLANNING.” LONG BEFORE KATRINA, FEXEX CONDUCTED DISASTER DRILLS SEVERAL TIMES A YEAR-FOR EVERYTHING FROM BIG EARTHQUAKES TO BIOTERRORISM TO A MONSTER TYPHOON HITTING THE COMPANY’S HUB IN THE PHILIPPINES. DO YOU THINK MOST COMPANIES SHOULD ENGAGE IN THIS SORT OF PLANNING EXERCISE? WHY OR WHY NOT? EXPLAIN YOUR ANSWER.
  24. 24. ANSWERS 1.BASED ON WHAT I HAVE LEARNT IN THIS CHAPTER, THE WAL- MART HAD DONE MANY THINGS THAT MANY COMPANIES AS WELL AS GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL DID NOT DO AS FOLLOWING:  HAULING $3 MILLION OF SUPPLIES TO RAVAGED ZONE OF KATRINA.  ARRIVING DAY BEFORE FEMA.  CONTRIBUTED $17 MILLION TO RELIEF EFFORT.  BEGAN 6 DAYS RESPONSE TO KATRINA BEFORE THE EVENT.
  25. 25. ANSWERS CONT. 2. CORPORATE PLANNERS SHOULD HANDLE SITUATIONS SUCH AS KATRINA BEFORE THEY ACTUALLY TAKE PLACE THROUGH; A CLEAR AMOUNT OF FUND NEED TO BE REGULAR APPROVED FOR ITS SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY IN EMERGENT EVENT. ONE MORE THE COMPANY’S EMPLOYEE SHOULD GET TRAINED WITH NATURAL PHENOMENA ESPECIALLY THE EARTHQUAKE OR SUCH A GREAT STORM LIKE KATRINA. MOREOVER AN IN-TIME ACTION MUST BE EFFECTIVELY TAKEN IN ORDER TO DEAL WITH THE REAL DISASTER.
  26. 26. ANSWERS CONT. 3. I THINK THAT MOST COMPANIES SHOULD ENGAGE IN THE ABOVE-MENTIONED SORT OF PLANNING BECAUSE THAT CAN BE A BIG AND CLEAR IMAGE OF CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY OF THE COMPANY WITH RESPONSE TO THE EMERGENT DISASTER. ONE MORE, IT WOULD PROMOTE THE POSITIVE ATTITUDE OF THE FIRM IN CARING THE SOCIETY NEEDS. FURTHER MORE SUCH AN ACTIVITY WOULD BE COME A GREAT PROMOTION TO THE PUBLICS, THAT MUST BE THE BENEFIT OF THE COMPANY ITSELF.
