dc.description.abstractThe DoD is a large, bureaucratic, rule-intensive organization that may no longer be best suited for its new environment. Building upon prior, multidisciplinary research, we draw uopn the best knowledge and practice in change management and analyze transformation from the classic Hierarchy to the Edge-like Holonistic organization, which offers excellent potential for performance improvement. Such analysis focuses on the processes of change from one organization form to another and leads to the generation of transformational plans, which can be used by acquisition leaders, practioners and policy makers to outlne steps--and leaps--required to affect fundamental organizational change. We also build upon prior work on computational modeling and experimentation to develop models of the transformation process, and we explore such models to emulate the behaviior of the alternate transformational plans noted above. By modeling and experimenting with processes of change, as opposed to processes of ongoing organizational routines, we begin to extend the state-of-the-art in computational modeling and experimentation. Practically, answers to our research questions have direct and immediate application to acquisitioin leaders and policy makers. Theoretically, we generalize to broad classes of organizational tranaformations and prescribe a novel set of organization redesign guides.en_US
