Improved understanding of multi-agency decisionmaking has been called for but is rarely achieved, partially because there is no well known, broadly accepted technique for conducting an effective negotiation planning exercise. Recently, scholars at the National Ecology Research Center have validated an approach to negotiation planning known as the Legal-Institutional Analysis Model [LIAM]. This paper reports the results of this validation study, suggests ways to use the LIAM in decisionmaking, and lists some subjects for further research.
