Abstract : Judgment plays an important role in all Operational Analysis (OA). NATO practitioners have determined that approaches in OA that are based on human judgement are increasingly critical to defence decision making. The purpose of the NATO Guide for Judgement-Based OA in Defence Decision Making is to create an understanding of what judgement-based OA is; to clarify what this type of analysis can do to help address problematic situations, and what people can expect from it in that respect; and, to provide guidance on how a judgement-based OA study should be carried out to maximise the validity, credibility and acceptance of such a study and its outcomes. The Guide is published as three volumes: 1) An analyst-oriented document (the Code of Best Practice for Soft' OA, setting rules of the road' for analysts); 2) A client-oriented document; and 3) A brief summarising brochure for high-level, executive' decision makers explaining key aspects.
