Example text

In response to the variations in how decisions are being made, environmental assessment frameworks need to be adaptive to the decision context in which they operate. This approach has been called the ‘contingency approach’ of the planning environment (Faludi 1987). Differences in the degree to which decision making is rational should then be accommodated in the assessment approach. 1 Theoretical perspectives to decision making and relations to EA Decision model Decision basis Rationality Scientific evidence (Simon 1957) and formulated objectives lead to ‘optimal’ decision.

Third, prescriptive theories (that can be said to be a type of normative theory based on descriptive theories) that attempt to improve decision making in a specific context through removing limitations and biases identified in descriptive theories (Kleindorfer et al. 1993). Prescriptive approaches seek to formulate recommendations that lead to better decisions, given the complexity and uncertainty characteristic of real-world 28 ANSEA theoretical background situations and given the true nature of decision makers as we know it (Johnson-Laird and Shafir 1993).

These models are of a strong descriptive character. In later years, these types of descriptive models have gained increasing empirical support, notably at the higher levels of strategic decision making (Kørnøv and Thissen 2000; Renton and Bailey 2000). 6 Mixed Scanning Incrementalism has also been criticized. Etzioni (1966) argues, for instance, that powerful interests and organized partisans dominate incremental decision making, and discourage or even severely inhibit, basic social innovation.
