Military command and regulate isn't purely evolving, it's co-evolving. know-how is developing new possibilities for various sorts of command and keep an eye on, and new forms of command and keep watch over are growing new aspirations for expertise. The query is how you can deal with this method, how one can in achieving a together optimised mixture of socio and technical and create the type of agility and self-synchronisation that glossy types of command and keep watch over promise. the reply recommend during this e-book is to re-visit sociotechnical platforms concept. In doing so, the issues of twenty first century command and keep watch over should be approached from another, multi-disciplinary and specifically human-centred perspective.

Human elements (HF) can be co-evolving. the normal notion of the sphere is to function a conduit for wisdom among engineering and psychology but twenty first century command and keep watch over provides an altogether various problem. Viewing army command and keep watch over during the lens of sociotechnical idea forces us to confront tough questions about the non-linear nature of individuals and know-how: expertise is altering, from platform centric to community centric; the interplay with that know-how is altering, from prescribed to exploratory; and complexity is expanding, from behaviour that's linear to that that is emergent. some of the chapters examine this transition and draw out ways that sociotechnical structures idea might help to appreciate it.

The sociotechnical standpoint finds itself as a part of a conceptual toolkit in which army command and keep watch over will be transitioned, from notions of bureaucratic, hierarchical methods of working to the devolved, agile, self-synchronising behaviour promised through smooth types of command and keep watch over like community Enabled power (NEC). Sociotechnical process idea brings with it a sixty 12 months legacy of useful program and this real-world grounding in company approach re-engineering underlies the whole booklet. An try out has been made to deliver a suite of occasionally summary (but no much less invaluable) ideas all the way down to the extent of straightforward examples, layout ideas, review standards and actionable types. All of those are in keeping with an in depth assessment of the present state-of-the-art, new sociotechnical/NEC reviews performed by means of the authors, and insights derived from box reports of real-life command and keep watch over. many times, what emerges is a realisation that the main agile, self-synchronising component to all in command and regulate settings is the human.
