Multi-Stakeholder Decision Making : A Systems Thinking Approach with Cases (Hardcover) (Kambiz Maani)
About this item
In the complex world of today, important policy and business decisions are still made with a 17th Century reductionist mindset and approach. Yet, complex challenges such as climate change, poverty, public health, security, energy futures, and sustainability transcend any single science, discipline or agency. Rather, they require integration of social, economic, cultural, political and environmental concerns to achieve acceptable and sustainable outcomes. This entails synthesis of diverse knowledge and perspectives in a transparent and unifying decision making process, engaging stakeholders with competing interests, perspectives and agendas under uncertain and often adversarial conditions.Multi-Stakeholder Decision Making — Systems Approach and Cases brings together a unique self-contained volume to address this challenge. The book introduces the systems approach in a non-technical language for multi-issue, multi-stakeholder decision making supplemented by numerous case studies including business, economics, healthcare, agriculture, energy, sustainability, policy and planning. The book provides a fresh and timely approach with practical tools for dealing with complex challenges facing an evolving global business and society today.
