    Episode #37: Exploring NDM's History, Contributions, and Future with Dr. Gary Klein

    Episode #37: Exploring NDM's History, Contributions, and Future with Dr. Gary Klein

    This episode contains a keynote delivered by Gary Klein at the NDM Association's 2022 virtual Open House. 

    Dr. Klein pioneered the Naturalistic Decision Making movement in 1989. 

    He is well-known for his work in advancing a number of decision-making tools, methods, and cognitive models. These include the Recognition-Primed Decision (RPD) model, the Data/Frame model of sensemaking, the PreMortem method of risk assessment, techniques for Cognitive Task Analysis, and the ShadowBox training approach.

    Klein is also the best-selling author of Sources of Power: How People Make Decisions, and four other books plus three co-edited volumes. His newest book, Snapshots of the Mind, is scheduled for publication in October.
