Decision Integrity (DIL) is a research and coaching enterprise working on holistic
approaches that benefit sustainable systems, projects, communities, organisations
and societies with special emphasis on transformative resilience.
This is an approach to bridging the gap between the generalist thinking of decision
makers and the specialism of modellers by concentrating on the preliminary issue
conceptualisation stage of modeling. It is a new type of visual facilitation using
hexagons as a flexible mapping technique to bridge the gap between thoughts and models.
A typical application is with project and decision teams. Creative thinking techniques,
including the use of cognitive colour-coding, are also incorporated. These techniques
are supported by the use of magnetic hardware and specially designed mapping softwares.
Hexagon mapping (also refereed to as complexity mapping) is a discipline through
which a variety of specialist decision support methods can be made more user friendly.
Hodgson developed hexagon mapping with colleagues in the 80s and 90s. For a full
