Abstract
We are interested in examining whether integrating command and control (2) concepts with novel organizational constructs will improve C2 agility. This paper addresses the C2 issues which arise while attempting to share enterprise assets with diverse organizational ownership. Stovepipe federal organizations cannot easily participate in collective assistance activities for a given mission requirement. This is exacerbated by an enterprise lack of awareness of mission requirements. But how would one repair or re-align these stovepipes to be made more flexible yet maintain stability, appears to be the issue of prime concern. There has been serious research on this issue conducted by Williamson. Williamson succinctly stated his premise as follows: we must design new adaptable organizations by attempting to construct and "design workable order-preserving mechanisms for adapting to disturbances in the service of mutual gains", these mechanisms must also avoid contractual incompleteness. We believe these goals can be accomplished by establishing enterprise (cross organization) mission publication mechanisms; supported by composeable organizations, mission self discovery and self nomination
