Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Causal Layered Analysis is a theory of knowledge and a methodology for creating more-effective policies and strategies. Since its invention in the late 1980s, it has been used successfully with governments, corporations, international think tanks, communities, and cities around the world. It has also been used as the primary research method for dozens of doctoral and master's students around the world. Causal Layered Analysis thus can be used to deepen people's understanding of strategy. Mapping reality from the viewpoint of multiple stakeholders enables them to develop more-robust scenarios. It helps them to understand current reality, and, by giving them a tool to dig deeper and more broadly, it allows them to create an alternative future that is robust in its implementation.
