Abstract:

This report documents the completion of Task 3 of the work stream Research Using in VivoSimulation of Meta-Organizational Shared Decision Making SDM, one component of theTechnology Innovation Fund TIF program on Meta-organizational Collaboration that has beendesigned to assist in understanding challenges faced by the Canadian Forces CF. The objectiveof the stream is to conduct basic research into shared decision making through the analysisofcase studies, exercises and simulations. Task 3 involved the development and testing of theshared decision making framework in vivo. The research at this stage is to demonstrate that themodel when implemented in vivo can produce improvements in problem solving processes andoutcomes such as better quality decisions, higher levels of satisfaction with problem solvingprocesses, better time-to-satisfaction ratio and more cohesive multi-organization groups.
