—  Decision Support Modelling with Morphological Analysis  —

General Morphological Analysis (GMA) is a computer-aided modelling method for structuring and analysing the total set of relationships contained in multivariate, non-quantified problem complexes. Originally developed for strategic decision support at the Institute for Technology Foresight and Assessment (at FOI - Stockholm), it is used by government agencies, international NGOs and academic research institutes 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.
