Diversity of PerspectivesWhat analysts proposed What managers fundedWhat the data supported What users needed

Some DefinitionsAnalysis: Using deductive reasoning to differentiate, study, andinterpret data, information, or knowledge to deduce deeper or moreprecise meaning or understanding.Synthesis: Using inductive reasoning to integrate, study, andinterpret the collective functioning of many parts as a whole to inferbroader or higher-level meaning or understanding.Intelligence: Acquiring, extracting, and interpretingdata, information, or knowledge to reveal underlying patterns abouta situation or issue of interest to an organization.People tend to be good at either analysisor synthesis; few are good at both.

Analysis is a Diverse Human ActivityBegins with a management decision to proceed.Collects content from people and organizations.Organizes content based on individual perspectives.Classifies issues based on human understanding.Selects analytical methods using expert knowledge.Interprets results through cognitive reasoning.Validates results through dialogue and collaboration.Authorizes implementation with another decision.Continues by monitoring, learning, and adapting.

Storing ContentInformation technology and network infrastructureSystems for archiving and managing contentInterfaces for entry, retrieval, & administrationDatabase, data warehouse, distributed databasesInformation repository, information systemKnowledge repository, knowledge mapPhysical libraries, digital libraries

Retrieving ContentAccess to contentBrowser interfaceSearch engineExtraction toolsManipulation toolsAssembly toolsRetrieval system

System User DiversityTools that are easy and intuitive use.System interfaces that can be customized.Systems that help people do their work.Content that is easy to find and access.Work processes that facilitate knowledge flow.Knowledge flow that is primarily horizontal.User diversity and flexibility are encouraged.System design plays a key rollin how people use systems.User-centric design can double the use of a system

Analysis Principles• Resources are required:time, effort, expertise, funding, capacity, technology, data,knowledge• Complexity is inherent: analysis is non-linear, involvesfeedback, iterations, delays, and uncertainty• Modeling is known: techniques are well-understood;extensive literature for most disciplines• Management perspectives:understanding, trust, confidence, liabilities, risk, externalities• Implementation is uncertain: decision making, stakeholderinterests, unknown outcomesAnalysis combines science & computers; skill &technique, judgement & experience; insight & intuition.
