Exploit Small Group Dynamics During Analysis to Support the Decision You Want


I gave the above keynote speech to the 13th NATO Operations Research and Analysis Conference last October, in which I described an “analysis process design” game as a thought experiment about how pathologies of small group discussions can be deliberately used to distort decisions following analysis. The thought experiment game can be applied I suspect to any process, including wargames, that includes small group discussions.

The paper is now downloadable (pdf) from the NATO Science and Technology Organization website.
