Question Description

During the spring of 2010, an oil rig explosion on a platform in the Gulf of Mexico resulted in one of the largest oil spills in history. As the weeks progressed and environmental problems increased, a myriad of suggestions, plans, proposals, and arguments were put forward. Each varied significantly, based on the particular group that proposed the solution and its involvement in the oil spill.

Research the British Petroleum Gulf of Mexico oil spill of spring 2010. Use the Circle of Conflict Model or the Triangle of Satisfaction model to analyze the event from three varying positions: BP, the state of Louisiana, and the United States federal government. You may use either the Circle of Conflict or Triangle of Satisfaction Model for your analysis. Write a 2- to 3-page paper outlining your completed model. You must include outside research to support your findings. Make sure that you use credible resources for your research.

Create a mind map of your analysis with the oil spill as the problem at the center and the three different organizations as the first level from the center. From each of these, you should include additional information, such as the various viewpoints, plans of actions, etc. Refer to the “Mind Map

Mind Map Example Chart key: Problem=Red; Starting Claim (Purpose)=Purple; Questions=Blue; Evidence=Orange; Further Research=Green I want a red stapler but do not have one Research Intel website to see if I can purchase a red stapler. Did they make my stapler? Having a red stapler will make me a better manager. How can I obtain a red stapler? How will having a red stapler make me a better manager? Intel has a website. My stapler is marked Intel. The stapler I have is blue. Is a red stapler better than a blue one? Does the brand of a red or blue stapler matter? Who else makes red staplers?

Research companies and purchase the best stapler for me. What are the qualities of a good stapler? Research the qualities of good staplers. 1 of 2 How to Make This Mind Map The map begins by addressing the problem: I want a red stapler but do not have one. In response to this problem, the critical thinker makes a claim. Having a red stapler will make me a better manager, implying that a blue stapler makes me a less effective manager. This can also be viewed as the goal or purpose of the critical-thinking process. Evidence may be used to support this claim, but generally claims are defined by questions. Questions ask what the significance of the claim is and how it might play out in the real world. Evidence, then, is used to respond to and clarify these questions. As the critical thinker begins to answer these questions based on the evidence at hand, further questions for precision or clarification or even more claims can be made. As there is no data to explore this new area further, the critical thinker has discovered an area of research and recommends steps for obtaining the precise information needed. © 2013 Laureate Education, Inc. 2 of 2 ...

Introduction

This paper employs the Circle of Conflict Model to analyze the British Petroleum (BP)
and Gulf of Mexico oil spill from three viewpoints: the outlook of BP, the interpretation of the
circle of conflict model and the state of Louisiana evidence.
The Circle of Conflict Model
Gary Furlong (2005) adapted primary grounds of clashes in the conflict resolution
toolbox to establish and address the strategic insights in facilitating a resolution. The constituents
of conflict were challenging British Petroleum for clean-up procedures where the oil had
potentially caused damage to deep-sea corals and other ecosystems. The components of the
conflict were demanding to resolve without the necessary ...
