Abstract
This Report proposes a basic model to study the role of institutional dynamics in the context of inter-agency collaboration. It constitutes one of the deliverables of a Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) research project that seeks to develop “high level models of collaboration behaviour and decision making, developing psycho-social conceptual models, and exploring potential mechanisms for overcoming social and cognitive barriers to collaboration. These will contribute to an understanding of how group and individual goals are affected and the effects of team- and organizational-level variables on the collective or shared decision-making process”. The specific purpose of the proposed basic model is to provide a first set of inter-related hypotheses to understand how institutional dynamics can facilitate or hinder inter-agency collaboration in a Canadian domestic context of national emergency, involving among others the Canadian Forces and the Department of National Defence.
