Alternative of methodology for capabilities planning for the work of the Center of Competence QUASAR

Nedko Dimitrov


The article focuses on the analysis of the management process elements in order to adapt a model of assessment of the necessary capabilities to perform functions in the field of security and safety. Two models were used as a basis: to assess the risk to security by creating and playing scenarios of typical security incidents and to quickly diagnose an emergency response system. A comparative analysis of the capability planning models - Ready2Respond Rapid Diagnostic and the National Security and Safety Method, is presented in the context of creating a methodology for scenario-based risk assessment for the needs of the QUASAR Center of Competence. As a result of the comparative analysis, the strengths of both options have been identified, which should be included in a variant of capabilities planning methodology.
