Technology Adoption

Lecture/presentation — video.
Richard Bergin.

Homeland Security professionals and the agencies they lead are more dependent than ever on technology to strengthen national preparedness. In particular, the use of technology to strengthen capability specific national priorities in support of the five pillars of national preparedness goal: Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery. In many instances technology is selected to support a particular preparedness goal, later implemented, and then low levels of acceptance and use are experienced. The adoption and use of technology in and among HLS organizations is often not well understood and accompanied by anecdotal evidence or case studies that do not provide adequate explanatory or predictive value to Homeland Security leaders. This module provides HLS leader with an applied understanding of three well-­‐supported theories that inform the problem of technology acceptance and use in Homeland Security.
