Abstract:

Eight case studies, including the ISAF mission, Rwanda Genocide, Haiti Earthquake, and Major Olympic Events, are presented to validate and improve our understanding of the SAS-085 C2 Agility model. The C2 Agility model consists of two major concepts 1 C2 Agility -- the ability to transition from one approach to an appropriate approach that can cope with the endeavours level of complexity SAS-085, draft, and 2 C2 Approach Agility -- the size and shape of the region of Endeavor Space where the approach in question can be successful SAS-085, draft, or the agility of a particular C2 approach as defined by six agility enablers flexibility, responsiveness, versatility, adaptiveness, resilience, and innovation. Reports, interviews, and media were used to complete a case study template that provided a systematic way of capturing evidence for agility. An evidence table was completed for each case study, and a meta-analysis was conducted by looking across the evidence tables, where 13 common findings were identified e.g., flexibility as a contributor to agility. In addition, 15 new findings were discovered and subsequently used to refine the C2 Agility Model e.g., the role of leadership in achieving and maintaining agility.
