Technical report | A Comparison of the Decision Ladder Template and the Recognition-Primed Decision Model
The decision ladder template, one of the tools of Cognitive Work Analysis, attracts attention as a point of comparison for models of naturalistic decision making, such as the recognition-primed decision model. This report compares the decision ladder template and the recognition-primed decision model in terms of five main factors. These factors are origins, concepts, knowledge elicitation, knowledge representation, and implications for the design of decision support systems. The report concludes that while there are several similarities between the decision ladder template and the recognition-primed decision model, there are a number of significant differences as well.
