  2. Demonstrate the goals, objectives, problem identification, actions, evaluation, and information base of Krueger and Decker (2010) with one full example from your management plan. [In other words, think about what you could extract from your management plan that you could use to demonstrate the concepts of Krueger and Decker (2010).]
  3. Provide a critique of your management plan in terms of what Krueger and Decker (2010) suggest for how goals, objectives, problems, actions, and evaluations should be defined. [In other words, do you think that the management plan adequately follows the concepts laid out by Krueger and Decker (2010)?] Defend your critique.
