Call for Committee Members

Call for Digital Training Chair and Co-Chair

The Society’s annual meeting, which includes a training day, is a valuable event for learning about applications of deep uncertainty planning and disseminating tips and tools for such studies. However, learning need not be limited to three days a year at one location. The leadership team recognizes that many regions of the world are under- or unrepresented at our meetings and would like to offer digital training and educational content for entities anywhere who would like a more in-depth and remotely accessible introduction to our methods. We are seeking two individuals – a Digital Training Chair and Co-chair – to lead a small team in creating a series of videos that present introductory material, methods, and example applications. Similarly to the planning and execution of the Society’s annual meeting, this is intended to be a finite project and not a rolling commitment. The leadership team hopes to engage society members who have experience in creating digital content in this effort and will facilitate necessary connections with other members who have specific relevant expertise on various topics. If you are interested in contributing to this effort, please email Steven Popper at swpopper [at] rand.org

Call for “DMDU Checklist” Ad Hoc Committee

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
