Chapter Summary

Individuals do not, as a rule, make choices according to a rational theory of choice with a meticulous system of weighing up the options. Such theories start from a given rationale and present the reader with a step-by-step plan. The flow model is intended to be a practical model, allowing training in forming judgements in groups. It must therefore be taught practically. Students should be given the opportunity as much as possible to discover for themselves the purpose of the model. The case history Allow yourself to be seen and don't cause trouble, included on the video "Power and Ethics", contains interviews with four Dutch soldiers from UNPROFOR DUTCHBAT. The flow model uses a problem, situated in field A, and four surrounding fields. Scholars have published scores of models related to forming judgements and taking decisions.

Keywords: Dutch soldiers; flow model; forming judgements; rational theory of choice
