  • Primary: Status
  • Secondary: Context

Background and Current Practice

This use case is derived from the need to understand the status of the organization. Every employee is a decision-maker at some level. An effective decision representation standard could be implemented in tools to enable capturing the real-time status related to decision-making, for example what decisions are being considered, where are we in the decision process, and what options are being considered. The combined representations could provide a real-time snapshot of the applied knowledge of an organization.

Use Case Scenario

Through the use of linked data, the subject matter of the decisions can be utilized to sort, analyze and present real-time and historical analysis of the thinking of the organization as represented by its decisions (planned, in process, and completed).

Problems and Limitations
