Abstract
This report examines the applicability of the Intuitive or Naturalistic Decision Making (NDM) approach as a framework for developing a military planning process that is easier to perform, more effective, and more consistent with natural human reasoning capabilities than existing analytic approaches. Theories of intuitive decision making are considered because they can inform how people solve complex problems or plan operations in natural settings and serve as a link between planning and decision making in the field. Based on previous models and experimental studies of naturalistic decision making, this report reviews concepts and procedures to support more efficient intuitive planning. This report discusses eleven specific concepts that should be considered in development of an abbreviated, intuitive planning process. This report also presents a prototype process to serve as a framework in which to consider how intuitive planning concepts might be synthesized with existing planning procedures.
