Paper Abstract

Models of adversaries' reasoning can be constructed to inform development of adaptive strategies, including strategies that include effects-based operations. Such models can apply to individual leaders or to groups that one seeks to influence. This paper describes an approach to building such models. The results are top-down, highly structured, driven by theory, designed with multiresolution methods that permit zooming in on issues, and suitable for use in high-level decision meetings. The models have been qualitative and non-automated, but the methodology could usefully be incorporated into a more general computer-supported decision-support environment, where it would supplement other tools for decision support.
