Right People Right Plan: A Correlation Study of Communication Among National Security Partners
by Duncan, Melanie Y., DM/IST, University of Phoenix, 2019, 286; 27671075
Abstract (Summary)

This study used correlation to determine the relationship of information sharing among the community of national security partners (CNSP). Measurement included an assessment of the strength of relationship using four predictor variables for a reduction in terrorist funding and terrorist attacks in the United States. This correlation study does not infer causation. A quantitative design tested the relationship strength among the four predictor variables, communication, culture, leadership, and technology. Members of the personal, professional network of the principal investigator received personal, individual invitations to participate in this study via an individualized electronic invitation. The null hypothesis was that a linear relationship for communication, information sharing, technology preparedness, and willingness to share information existed. The value of these results to the CNSP members is that information sharing does exist. However, the degree of measurement suggests that the primary CNSP member supported determined the quality of communication, and relationship strength is higher when the CNSP is military or intelligence information. The survey results indicated that internal communication was of higher quality than intra-agency communication. However, when the external organization was the military or intelligence, the quality of intra-agency communication improved. The quality of communication provided improved based on the CNSP member receiving it.
