Other transformational changes also will come into play, including the Internet, global warming, the new economy, use of incentive and management approaches to resource management, government improvement, reliance on markets and the private sector, security imperatives, and patterns of international competition and cooperation.
Significant attention is given to technology because of its critical role in NOAA’s future. Technology issues and developments are discussed both in a separate section and throughout the study. Focuses of the study include resource management and business trends. NOAA's interest in resource management arises from its many responsibilities for measurement and management and its need to deal with changing pressures, new understanding of problems and changing approaches. Understanding of business trends can help NOAA meet demands for services, interface with evolving types of business organizations, and learn from developments in the private sector that may help it to improve its own effectiveness.
