OughtWe decision app – an Expert System

OughtWe operates as an expert system
OughtWe taps into disaster management decision making
because disaster management is about crucial decisions.

When making a decision, what things are important considerations?
Given all considerations are not equally important,
what weighting do you attribute to each criterion.

All criteria are full editable – from delete them, to neutralising them (by setting their weighting to zero, to adding new criteria.

Weightings should be adjusted to reflect your context and your values.

Oughtwe encourages iterative planning –
by sharing screenshots or tailored PDFs
The structures and processes in OughtWe use documents in order to achieve results.

As an element of incorporating user feedback into the Expert System approach we encourage all OughtWe users to provide reviews within the app.

Like these four different versions, even binary choices can be nuanced Establishing context – naming and describing the decision to be made, identifying options and their rationales, generating decision criteria and attributing weightings to them, applying the decision criteria to evaluate each option, and taking the preferred option into a plan. Attributing weightings to Head, Heart, and Gut decision criteria Evaluating – recording the associated rationales Display the evaluation to stimulate conversations Structure your plan to be as simple as possible Planning is about monitoring and refinement Communicate throughout by screen shares and tailored reports […]
