Viewpoints in Homeland Defense and Security: Thesis Series: Homeland Security Organizations: Design Contingencies in Complex Environments [video] [open html - 0B]
From the Video Description: "Many U.S. homeland security organizations are designed around a 19th century model created for the Industrial Age. Information Age challenges demand new ideas for organizational design. Traditional mechanistic and hierarchical bureaucracies must be re- examined. This thesis explores case studies that include an intelligence organization fighting bioterrorism and a military unit battling insurgents in asymmetrical warfare. Case Study research was selected to examine 'how' and 'why' questions related to organic organizational design in dynamic and complex environments." The duration of this video is 19 minutes and 30 seconds. The complete thesis can be accessed at the following web address: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=691503].
