Descripción

Paperback. 72 pages. Dimensions: 9.7in. x 7.4in. x 0.1in.Not all complex adaptive systems are equal. While some systems succeed in very challenging situations, others fail. Rather than treating all complex adaptive systems as the same as the DoD does, this thesis sets out to determine whether there are specific characteristics of a system that make one more resilient and survivable than another. To accomplish this task, this study assesses the purpose, leadership, and organization of two major complex adaptive systems. The first case study conducts an analysis of Hezbollah, arguably a very successful system, during its war with Israeli in 2006. This study reveals that Hezbollahs success was due in part to their clearly communicated and consistent purpose, delegated leadership philosophy, and flattened organizational structure. The second case study provides an analysis of Germanys military-industrial complex failure during WWII. The analysis of Germany reveals that not only are the individual characteristics of the system important to its resiliency and survivability, but so are the interactions between those individual characteristics. Germanys leadership failed to adjust accordingly the systems strategic guidance when it expanded Germanys strategic goals during WWII. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. N° de ref. de la librería 9781288230617
