Structured Analysis of Competing Hypotheses


Developed for the US Department of Defense, Structured Analysis of Competing Hypotheses is a collection of six self-paced lessons that are designed to explain key concepts related to structured analysis of competing hypotheses (SACH), an analytic method used to simultaneously examine many pieces of evidence across multiple hypotheses. It defines intelligence and provides a standardized vocabulary for communicating estimates of the probability of an outcome to a decision maker.

It also explores the automation of the SACH method using specialized software. Each lesson includes activities and exercises to check for comprehension of key concepts and provide opportunities for basic skill application.
To create Structured Analysis of Competing Hypotheses, the NFLC converted content from an existing platform-delivered course into rich-media standalone learning objects (lessons) that allow a globally dispersed work force just-in-time access through a state-of-the-art learning management system.
