Introduction “Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist attacks…This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time. None of us will ever forget this day. Yet, we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world.” President George W. Bush spoke these and other words to the United States of America and the world immediately after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Roughly one year after this appalling attack the Homeland Security Act of 2002 established the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), bringing together 22 separate federal agencies, primarily to prevent terrorist attacks within the United States (About, 2012). Over the almost 10 years since the inception of the DHS, the Department has grown considerably, employing over 240,000 citizens, creating and implementing projects across a wide-range of duties to keep America safe (About, 2012). Efficiency is a key to making any organization successful. In this day and age of drastically reduced government spending, it is imperative that the DHS develop a solid Portfolio Management Plan to ensure its primary goals are fulfilled to ensure their vision and missions are indeed met.
Strategic Plan From the Department of Homeland Security’s Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2012-2016, the vision of the DHS

    Time According to Einstein's Theory of Relativity In 1915, Albert Einstein first proposed his theory of special relativity. Essentially, this theory proposes the universe we live in includes 4 dimensions, the first three being what we know as space, and the fourth being spacetime, which is a dimension where time and space are inextricably linked. According to Einstein, two people observing the same event in the same way could perceive the singular event occurring at two different times, depending…

It was hard to choose to be honest; it actually came down to the The Burke-Litwin Model and The Six-Box Organization Model. The reason I almost went that direction of the Six Box Organization Model was because of the way Weisbord referred to it.
