Description - Structured Decision Making by Robin Gregory
This book outlines the creative process of making environmental
management decisions using the approach called Structured
Decision Making. It is a short introductory guide to this
popular form of decision making and is aimed at environmental
managers and scientists.
This is a distinctly pragmatic label given to ways for
helping individuals and groups think through tough multidimensional
choices characterized by uncertain science, diverse stakeholders,
and difficult tradeoffs. This is the everyday reality of
environmental management, yet many important decisions currently
are made on an ad hoc basis that lacks a solid value-based
foundation, ignores key information, and results in selection of an
inferior alternative. Making progress ? in a way that is
rigorous, inclusive, defensible and transparent ? requires
combining analytical methods drawn from the decision sciences and
applied ecology with deliberative insights from cognitive
psychology, facilitation and negotiation.
The authors review key methods and discuss case-study examples
based in their experiences in communities, boardrooms, and
stakeholder meetings. The goal of this book is to lay out
a compelling guide that will change how you think about making
