The Adaptive Architectures for Command and Control (A2C2) research in 1997 examined the performance of alternative organizational structures in a simulated joint operational environment. It also evaluated the structural preferences of experimental teams representing Joint Task Forces. Teams were asked to choose between three alternative organizational designs that varied in degree of similarity to the structure in which teams had been previously trained, thus testing teams’ willingness to change. While a number of related papers in this Proceedings examine both the results of teams’ decision choice and the simulated performance of the alternative architectures, the purpose of this research is to capitalize on the military expertise of research participants. This paper presents the analysis of twenty-two officers with operational backgrounds who used models of organization theory to critique the experimentally derived structures. The contribution of this component of the A2C2 research is to enlighten our understanding of the critical features defined by operationally experience military officers as they considered structural adaptability and performance effectiveness in a joint mission context. This perspective is important to enhancing the generalizability of the laboratory-based A2C2 research to an actual joint operating environment.
