Command and keep watch over (C2) is the set of organizational and technical attributes and tactics during which an firm marshals and employs human, actual, and knowledge assets to unravel difficulties and attain missions.C2 Re-envisioned: the way forward for the firm identifies 4 interrelated megatrends which are separately and jointly shaping the cutting-edge and perform of C2 in addition to the undertaking demanding situations we are facing.

These megatrends the e-book examines are:

  • Big Problems
  • ―manifested partly as expanding complexity of either endeavors and organisations, as army institutions shape coalitions with one another, and partnerships with a number of civilian businesses and non-governmental businesses

  • Robustly Networked Environments―enabled by way of the super extensive availability of complex info and communications applied sciences (ICT) that position unparalleled powers of knowledge construction, processing, and distribution within the fingers of virtually an individual who wishes them―friend and foe alike
  • Ubiquitous Data―the unheard of volumes of uncooked and processed info with which human actors and C2 platforms needs to contend
  • Organizational alternatives―as decentralized, net-enabled methods to C2 were made extra possible via know-how.

The e-book analyzes historic examples and experimental proof to figure out the serious elements that make C2 get it wrong and the way to get it correct. profitable corporations sooner or later may be those who can reconfigure their methods in an agile demeanour. providing clean views in this topic of severe value, this e-book presents the certainty it is very important select your organizational techniques to fit the project and the stipulations at hand.
