COMPLEXITY-RENDERING AND DECISION-MAKING: A SET OF MATRICES
In the case of multiple stakeholders, it may be quite challenging to:
- render the links between the system’s various parameters,
- keep track of the line of reasoning, of all the choices, hypothesis and decisions made.
One more dimension must be added to the system’s depicting pattern.
The SCOS method’s distinctiveness:
- it arranges and depicts relations between stakeholders, values, functions and performances in a legible form: a set of matrices that are dovetailed and intertwinned*.
- *(Remember the name of that cube-shaped 3D puzzle game at the turn of the century?)
Using the set of matrices, it is possible to:
- assemble the various components of the breakdown (along each of the system’s parameters);
- and keep track of the line of reasoning.
We are thus in a position to:
- envision the project in its globality
- validate or re-examine choices made
- eventually decide on follow-ups.
