Guidelines

For those agencies that are struggling with decision problems of all types I can help in developing resolution practices using an ethnography.

It is a very detailed study of the situation by observation and refining views as the study progresses. Such a process is neessary to fully understand what is happening in the workplace. From a logistician's perspective it enables an insight that might not be otherwise visible. The outcome could lead to new theories about how a system operates ad how to support it. At the present time, the focus is on reliabiity analysis; but, that not always be the case. Some other factor may be more dominanat. Sometimes you just need to rethink the methods as what has always bedone ma not be what nees to be doe. Only an ethnogoraphy will show this.

If you have a problem that seems not to have a solution, an ethnography will find a solution. The typical profile of a client is someone working on problems at the strategy or doctrine level, across different scenarios, multi-dimensional, non-linear, and sovereign sustainability and survivability characteristics.

Current decision processes assumes a linear problem. In most cases though, problems will be non-linear, multi-dimension and multi-disciplined. This structure is difficult to solve, but an ethnography will break the problem in to constituent elements to articulate a solution.

Culture and civilization problems cannot be assumed linear. Typical problem types will be non-linear and include:

All problems in these categories can be addressed through ethnography. Specific cases will vary on the situation.
