And the decision process must be designed to reach a conclusion that is acceptable to as many stakeholders as possible. Decisions without agreed criteria can further be subdivided into cases without specified criteria and into cases with differing criteria. Both cases require some kind of social process either to define the relevant criteria or to encompass the different groups with their own originally defined criteria in order to reach a decision.
