Hodgson’s three stage framework

Hodgson’s three stage framework (1992)

1 Examine the situation

· Get the critical facts
· Identify the key stakeholders
· Identify each stakeholder’s options (what each stakeholder wants done).

2 Establish the dilemma

· Identify the working principles and norms that drive each option (why each stakeholder wants it done)
· Project the possible outcomes (consequences) of each stakeholder option. Do any violate your principles, or those of your organisation?
· Determine the actions (means) necessary to produce each outcome. Do any violate your principles, or those of your organisation?
· State the dilemma.

3 Establish the options

· Identify the General Principles(s) behind each option.
· Compare the General Principle(s) behind each option. Which is the most responsible General Principle(s) in this situation?
· The option with the most responsible General Principle(s) is your choice for action.
