DMDU Checklist ad hoc committee announcement
One of the Society’s goals is to be a source of guidance that can be widely accessed and understood by any entities that want to include deep uncertainty concepts in their activities. To that end, the leadership team has determined that one valuable product would be a DMDU methods “checklist” for practitioners to reference while scoping or undertaking a study. The checklist may include, for example, prompts for gathering appropriate data, considering a sufficiently diverse set of futures, identifying high-quality scenarios, and employing suitable decision criteria.
To create the checklist we are soliciting volunteers for an ad hoc committee. It is our hope that the committee will include both experienced researchers and practitioners as well as those with less experience whose needs and questions could help to steer the list. The expected time/effort commitment is approximately six months over which one could expect two to three conference calls with other committee members, two to three rounds of document edits via email, and a report to the leadership team either via conference call or email. The target start date for this effort is January 2019. If you would like to participate, please email Rob Lempert at lempert[at]rand.org
