Collaboration Over Adaptation: The Case for Interoperable Communications in Homeland Security

In response to another's argument regarding adaptive management, the author prescribes interoperable communications' "bitter medicine" through an analogy likening the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to a corporate conglomerate with little in common and even less in terms of cooperative history among its formerly independent and multiple operating units. The author argues that adaptive response's uncertain trajectory cannot be depended on in the critical function of disaster preparedness and homeland security assurance.
