Abstract:

National Security Innovations NSI developed a Goals-Means GM Meta-model of leadership decision-making as a component of the IARPA PAINT system. The GM Meta Model instantiates social psychological theories on human decision-making into a java program that provides analysts with a tool to replicate and deconstruct the complex decision calculus. The tool incorporates a range of decision criteria, heuristics and styles to approximate real human decision making to capture the values and priorities of leaders from varied cultural and historical contexts. In addition to modeling individual decision process, the GM meta-model models the effect of group dynamics and social influence to allow simultaneous analysis of multiple decisions from a dynamic set of decision makers.
