This thesis develops an adaptive structure for analyzing problems involving sociotechnical systems in the context of societal warfare. The structure, called the Modular Analysis Process (MAP), has been designed to help solve problems that require policy and/ or systems analysis approaches to evaluate. The MAP can be used to analyze the impact of alternative designs on a complex system's architecture, (say, to its doctrines, machines, procedures, organizational structure, etcetera), in relationship to a scenario and mission. The MAP helps the analyst to efficiently develop cost-effective solutions to problems. Most of this thesis' examples pertain either to the area of command and control (C2) above the theater command level or to strategic C2.
