Operation Rollback Water: The National Guard’s Response to the 2009 North Dakota Floods (A) Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

In springtime 2009, North Dakota experienced some of the worst floods in state history. This case describes the way the state's National Guard responded by mobilizing thousands of its own troops and working in concert with employees and equipment from six other states as well as an array of national, state, and local stakeholders. Particularly, after providing background on the North Dakota National Guard and the state's susceptibility to flood, the case catches how Guard officials developed and practiced a strategy ("Operation Rollback Water") to react to the floods and the way they then had to adapt that plan as the crisis escalated and states changed. In particular, the Guard had to work with a lot of national resources that arrived amid the crisis, it had to respond to demands for wide-ranging and speedy assistance from a range of municipalities, and it had to bear a prolonged occasion that taxed Guard members in the area and the operations and management team that supported them. The case concludes with an epilogue that describes how the Guard used the lessons it learned from the 2009 floods in response to a similar disaster in 2011.
