The NATO Network Enabled Operations (NEC) C2 Maturity Model (N2C2M2) defines a number of
command and control (C2) Approaches that correspond to various ways to accomplish C2 functions.
These Approaches are defined by organizational the allocation of decision rights, patterns of
interaction, and the distribution of information. Recent work in C2 theory has considered the
differences in performance relative to the C2 Approach that is adopted. This work has investigated the
idea that an optimal operating region of the C2 Approach Space can be identified for particular
missions and circumstances, where optimal is a function of effectiveness, efficiency and agility. While
circumstances that are characterized by the presence of degraded network conditions or hostile or
extreme environments is of great interest, the performance of various c2 Approach options under
these conditions have not been well studied. This paper focuses on the relative resilience of
organizations as a function of their C2 Approach (a key component of agility). We explore the
relationship between C2 Approach and performance under degraded information and communications
environments using a set of six unique simulation experiments.
