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

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 in addition to an array of national, state, and local stakeholders. Particularly, after providing background on the North Dakota National Guard as well as the state's susceptibility to flood, the case gets how Guard officials developed and practiced a plan ("Operation Rollback Water") to respond to the floods and the way they then needed to adapt that strategy as the crisis escalated and conditions changed. In particular, the Guard had to work with a lot of national resources that arrived amid the disaster, it had to react to demands for wide-ranging and fast aid from a variety of municipalities, and it had to withstand a protracted occasion that taxed Guard members in the field and the operations and management team that supported them. The case concludes with an epilogue that describes how the Guard implemented the lessons it learned from the 2009 flooding in response to a similar calamity in 2011.
