—  Decision Support Modelling with Morphological Analysis  —

General Morphological Analysis (GMA) is a computer-aided method for structuring and analysing the total set of relationships contained in multi-dimensional, non-quantifiable, problem complexes. Originally developed at the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI) for long-term planning and strategic decision support, it can be used for modelling complex policy and planning issues, developing scenario and strategy laboratories, and analysing organisational and stakeholder structures. GMA is especially useful for working with so-called Wicked Problems.
