Successful decision making begins with problem recognition and ends with the commitment
to action, or a decision. Every decision process moves through a common set of phases
between recognition and decision.

In the case of complex problems, such as dynamic allocation and policy decisions for natural
resources, each phase requires innovation and integration of new technologies to progress
towards a robust final choice.

The goal of research into decision support implementation is to move the decision process
beyond the iterative phases of identification and development into the selection phase
for either:
  • A bargaining routine, such as a model mediated consensus session, or
  • Aid development of science-based management alternatives that can
        be presented to an authority for a definitive policy outcome
