Title: Modeling Leadership Dynamics in Multinational Environments
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Contract: N10PC20084
Award Amount: $98,999.00


We propose to develop a computational model of leadership designed to capture complex variables including cultural differences in leadership requirements along with task differences, primarily ill-defined goals, which pose leadership challenges. Rather than avoiding these kinds of complexity and developing a computational model that is unlikely to scale up, we believe there is more to be gained by confronting these kinds of issues and using what we learn to conceptualize a richer leadership model at the outset. We will prepare a conceptual design for the computational model in Phase I, along with initial efforts at prototyping. We will also take advantage of the virtual Calamityville simulation of humanitarian relief as a possible candidate scenario, a comparison case, and a starting point for developing evaluation methods for assessing the computational model of multinational leadership.
