MetadataShow full item record
The impetus of this work is to develop a complete and ubiquitous approach to augment the planning, programming, budgeting, and execution (PPBE) decision process quantitatively. The proposed solution provides a methodology that emphasizes the ontology of senior leadership questions, highlights those data sets that are relevant, and leverages a suite of methodologies that meet the ontological requirements. We propose a data democratization and utilization platform (Laniakea) as well as a four-stage analytical engine (QuANTUM) to achieve this objective. We posit that tethering these approaches to the PPBE problem set will enhance the derived solutions through a technologically-scalable, mathematically-flexible, and factually-rigid solution and that this will enhance leadership's overall awareness, and to understand and chart a way toward cognitive supremacy.
