Structured Decision Making

FYI, a webinar of interest:

Structured Decision Making: An approach to solving problems in natural resources management

Structured decision making (SDM) is a flexible and robust approach to making difficult choices. It can be used by an individual or as the framework for collaborative decision making, and it can take as little as a few minutes or as much as many months. Most importantly, SDM yields decisions that are more likely to achieve your objectives and are more likely to be accepted by others. I will provide an overview of SDM, including the 5 main components of every decision, and examples of its application in managing natural resources, primarily wildlife. This presentation is designed for natural resource professionals in a variety of roles, from on the ground practitioners to higher level managers.

Date: March 19, 2019 from noon to 1pm
Speaker: Mike Larson, Supervisor & Decision Analyst, Forest Wildlife Research, MN DNR, Grand Rapids
Cost: $20 per webinar or $50 for the entire 2019 series (except for certain free locations in Minn.)

2 thoughts on “Structured Decision Making”

  1. Forest Service Research published a report on this same topic a couple years ago. I wonder what the similarities will be with this talk.

  2. If you like pre-decisional outcome decisions, SDM is the way to go. Mostly phony. It is a waste of time and money. Snake oil.
