Abstract
Agility has recently caught the military community's attention as a possible contender to deal with complex endeavours. Many enablers of agility have been identified but several aspects of their implementation are not completely understood. The Network Enabled Operations (NEC) C2 Maturity Model (N2C2M2) describes five C2 approaches that correspond to different ways to accomplish C2 functions. It is believed that more capable C2 approaches and higher level of maturity should provide more agility. This paper describes a simulation-based experiment that investigated how C2 approaches deployed in a comprehensive approach context impact agility and mission effectiveness. Comprehensive and whole-of-government approaches are particularly well suited for this study since their success depends on effective coordination between organizations. Results of the simulation suggest that more capable C2 approaches provide more agility. In addition, it suggests that enablers of agility, namely responsiveness, resiliency, flexibility, and situational awareness for this study, are positively correlated with measures of agility.
