Calculating Interagency Complexity

P is the Beryl Radin concept of juggling policy, politics, process expectation; A is the Barbara Romzek & Melvin Dubnick concept of internal and external expectations; n is the total number of organizations represented within the interagency; C is the measure of competing interests. This sum represents the nature of complexity the leader will need to understand in order to apply guidance and direct policies. The greater C is, the more complicated leading the interagency will be. This is what it might look like:
