An Introduction to Mental Modeling

Matthew D. Wood, Sarah Thorne, Daniel Kovacs, Gordon Butte, and Igor Linkov

The goal of this book is to introduce readers to Mental Modeling, an evidence-based process to facilitate decision making by describing the values and knowledge of individuals involved in the decision-making process. Over the ensuing decades of application, Mental Modeling has been in continuous development, extending from initial applications in risk communication and risk management into a broad range of other applications, from strategic planning, to stakeholder engagement to change management and technology transfer and adoption.
