Stake-Holder Asset-based Planning Environment (SHAPE)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
Colorado Engineering, Inc (CEI) is a small woman owned business with a wealth of engineering expertise in the development of software and hardware systems for DoD combat, weapon and sensor systems has teamed with Villanova University to develop the SHAPE system. The measuring and mapping of community development in order to adjust tactics, as well insert stimuli to direct future change, is a purely systemic problem. Community development and maximization of assets is based on human behavior; all cultures and governments are made up of people with individual behaviors and groups that form the cultural behavior of the whole. The individual behaviors and motivations are difficult enough to understand on their own; the cultural understanding and control requires a holistic and systemic approach to influence reform and collaboration for a desired outcome. A systemic approach and system of tools will allow for the continuous gauging of community acceptance to change and assistance; the systemic model developed and incorporate from this analysis not only allows the measuring of community development, but will also allow commanders and government officials to change stimuli to predict what effects they impose on the resultant community development.
