Abstract:

The future of command and control is not Command and Control. In fact, the term Command and Control has become a significant impediment to progress. This paper presents and discusses key terms that form the core of a new conceptual foundation -- one that can provide a point of departure for the systematic exploration of future command and control. Three concepts form this core agility, focus, and convergence. In brief, agility is the critical capability that organizations need to meet the challenges of complexity and uncertainty focus provides the context and defines the purposes of the endeavor convergence is the goal-seeking process that guides actions and effects.
