Abstract [en]

Agility is developing to a more and more central concept in the military domain and new war fare methods etc. is creating a greater demand on the Swedish Defence Agency to be more agile. The concept is very complex but could be described as the ability a command team has to discover threats and opportunities, and act with a response towards these to gain advantage in the situation.

This report aims to develop an assessment tool for evaluating whether or not, or to which extent, a command team is agile. Discussions have been made in sessions with informants that somehow are connected to (working with or research about) agility in the Swedish Defence Agency to discuss the development of an assessment tool like this. Five sessions have been executed and after the first two respectively the last three, upgrades of the tool were made.

The result of the study shows that it is not impossible to develop an assessment tool, but for a complex concept like agility, it is very hard. The conclusions drawn is that it might be possible to create a basic frame for a tool that further on can be shaped to fit the command team being evaluated.
