Decisions are made constantly and at so many different levels, global, national, local, social, political, and economic. In practice, decision makers are often facing controversial issues and they are challenged to select those goals that they want to optimize in contrast to others that they are willing to accept deviation from the optimal performance. Decision Making can be defined as the attempt of solving dilemmas raised by conflicting pursuits (Zeleny, 1982). The scope of Multicriteria Analysis (MCA) is the investigation of decision problems, which take into account multiple criteria (Kahneman et al., 1982).
Most local decision-makers do not have the experience to apply to many proposals and rely on existing anecdotal data and "expert" testimony. A lack of evaluation criteria adds to the difficulties of determining if a project proposal is appropriate for thier community. This book discusses criteria and best practices for evaluation of projects, providing a decision-making matrix. Although the focus of this book is on artificial reefs, this matrix could be modified to apply to any project where similar dynamics apply. The matrix uses a disaggregate method modeled after the Goeller scorecard. The matrix applies identified best practices and provides a scoring method that can assist the decision-making process. The book acknowledges the limitations of proposals and realizes that many decisions in a political realm have variables not covered in this study. However, the lack of decision-making continuity demonstrates the need for this research as s first step.
Implementation is the most important stage in the strategic decision making process. However, many of the previous studies on implementation have focused on the first stage of the strategic decision making process. Furthermore, these studies have only been conducted in Anglo-Saxon countries. Therefore, the question was raised whether the implementation process and the factors affecting its outcome within banks in Jordan are different to those in organisations which operate in Anglo-Saxon countries. Consequently, more research is needed into the implementation stage and the need was perceived to investigate the implementation process in organisations operating in different countries. This book is one of the first to investigate the nature of the implementation process of strategic decisions outside Europe and North America. It investigates the criteria used in Jordanian banks to measure the outcome of the implementation process. It also explores the factors which may affect this outcome. Twelve strategic decision case studies were studied and fifty-eight semi-structured interviews, observation, and documentation research were conducted to collect the data.
Traffic Management Centers (TMCs) provide many benefits to both traffic operators and on-road travelers. ITS technologies such as closed circuit videos allow traffic operators to monitor and operate freeways, dynamic message signs can provide roadway information so that travelers can properly react to the roadway situation. For long term support of TMCs, this research described three separate tasks. First, this research describes the factors influencing the TMCs investments, effective methods in persuading the public to support deployment of TMCs, and legal issues involved with making a decision to deploy TMCs. After developing two approaches, which provide the range of criteria weights, this research uses a concordance approach to explain the priority ranking of these criteria. The results indicate that incident management, improved environment and improved safety are the most important factors influencing the TMCs investment, while newspaper articles and other media are the most effective method in persuading the public to support deployment of TMCs.
On the introduction of the euro in 1999, eleven countries gave up independent monetary policy to a common European Central Bank. In making that decision many were concerned whether these countries are structurally and cyclically ready to cope with a one size fits all monetary policy. This study analyses the structural and cyclical properties of European countries of the past 50 years and considers whether prolonged and extended economic integration has brought the European economies together or is dividing them. Some economists consider the Optimum Currency Area criteria to be endogenous, so that economies might eventually meet the OCA criteria ex post joining a single currency, even if they do no ex ante. This study establishes the theoretical foundations of OCA and by using country and regional data, examines the determinants of business cycle synchronicity and the patterns of trade, specialisation and business cycles since 1960, providing a outlook for the future of the euro. This study provides a diverse and comprehensive approach to the endogeneity of OCAs and would be useful for anyone interested in the development of monetary union in Europe.
