There is growing evidence that organizational architectures of military Command and Control C2 systems are evolving from multiple layered, hierarchical top-down commands to more adaptable commands of networked teams. This research presents a first principles approach to developing a computational framework to measure and compare the organizational architecture of any military unit or commercial business. The developed construct takes the form of a game that imitates processes an organization must accomplish to reach an objective. Supported by mathematical analysis, we implement the framework as a simulation to measure the effectiveness of various organizational architectures. We explore performance advantages of different architectures when an organizations objective andor operating environment change.
