This figure shows a mediation system that takes call detail records from several different switches and reformats them into standard call detail records that are sent to the billing system. This presentation was an introduction of the recently completed labor productivity study for metal stud and drywall installation trades. The financial recession which began in 2008, poses some real threats to the financial stability of construction companies now, and when the nation climbs out of recession.
At the center of any society's culture are basic agreements about cooperation between its members. Additional insights into designing new dispute resolution systems are offered by Beyond Intractability project participants. We know from our own day-to-day experiences that people fail to cooperate as often as they do cooperate.
In this essay, we focus on explaining how inefficient dispute-resolution systems can be identified, and how effective replacements can be designed.
Ury, Brett, and Goldberg pioneered Dispute Systems Design (DSD) in the 1980s, as a method for resolving intractable or frequent conflicts in troubled organizations, businesses, or entire industries. The first heuristic involves the relationship between three ways of resolving disputes: by negotiating interests, by adjudicating rights, or by pursuing power options (such as strikes or lockouts). At the Caney Creek mine, most disputes, even minor ones, were resolved with power struggles.
The following diagram shows a distressed conflict management system, such as the one found at Caney Creek before it was improved, and a healthy dispute management system that resolves most disputes at the interest level, fewer at the rights level, and fewest through power options. Negotiating interests is less expensive than adjudicating rights or pursuing power options. Negotiating interests results in mutually satisfactory solutions, while the other two approaches are win-lose, meaning one side wins and the other side loses. The second heuristic incorporates six design principles for new dispute-resolution systems, which follow directly from the first heuristic. The third heuristic is a set of four stages for implementing the new dispute-resolution system. These stages are self-explanatory, but they are helpful for explaining the changing roles that third-party interveners must perform in designing new dispute-resolution systems. The third heuristic focuses more on the process of designing dispute-resolution systems than the content. Yet, although Ury, Brett, and Goldberg designed a system that discouraged inefficient dispute resolution, the system design failed to address the source of basic problems. Many of these issues are discussed in more detail below, with respect to application of DSD principles outside the United States. At the same time as Western practitioners have seized the opportunity to utilize DSD principles in new contexts, other societies have been rediscovering traditional forms of conflict resolution.
These trends have resulted in a greater effort on the part of conflict-management practitioners to produce culturally compatible procedures.[27] The resulting systemic approach to conflict management has spurred the evolution of DSD and the integration of conflict-management principles into democratic decision-making. As a result, several scholars and practitioners have offered principles that should be followed when working in other cultural contexts. One might imagine that the structure of effective intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) would be modeled on DSD principles. A new place to explore and discuss ideas for moving beyond the complex intractable conflict problems that threaten human society. Science cannot resolve moral conflicts, but it can help to more accurately frame the debates about those conflicts. The problem in defense is how far you can go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without.

A solid rock is not disturbed by the wind; even so, a wise person is not agitated by praise or blame.
We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people. Change comes not from men and women changing their minds, but from the change from one generation to the next.
This diagram shows the mediation device is capable of receiving and decoding proprietary data formats from three different switch manufacturers. If there are any problems with call processing, the call detail records are sent to message investigation for further analysis. In examining intricate networks of causes and effects, one can identify linked sets of causes and effects. Dispute resolution is a part of every society's culture, and in each society some methods are favored over others. We can think of this process as the design of new, more efficient ways of agreeing not to agree. Their pioneering work was done at the Caney Creek Coal Mine, a mine that had been plagued by strikes in the 1970s.[4] At the center of their method were three heuristics for analyzing conflicts and designing new systems, which could deal with these conflicts quickly and efficiently, before they escalated into the frequent strikes, and lockouts that had been occurring at this mine almost routinely. The employees found the grievance procedures so cumbersome and ineffectual, that they just started a wildcat (impromptu) strike whenever an affront occurred, because they found this to be the best and quickest way to get response from management. Provide the necessary motivation, skills, and resources.[6] An alternative system can function only if people buy into it. It implies that there is no single approach to designing dispute-resolution systems; the findings over the course of implementation should determine the specific content of each dispute-resolution system. Inefficient social systems will consistently attach lower costs to actions that result in inefficient outcomes. For example, in Caney Creek, if one of the major sources of disputes was stolen property, the system that should be redesigned was not the dispute-resolution system itself, but rather the aspects of the system that led to theft.
It is difficult to imagine, for example, how designing a dispute-resolution system might help the abortion debate in the United States. Yet a cursory glance at existing IGOs shows that they generally do a poor job of moving conflicts to interest-based disputes, to minimize intractability. Some anatomical components of the limbic system do not appear to be involved in emotions (e.g. The mediation device converts these formats into a standard call detail record (CDR) format that can be used by the billing system. These event sources may be from the network elements or from other companies that have provided services to your customers. Marx argued that the relationship of class, of the proletariat to the bourgeoisie, orders all modern social systems. Each culture in the world may be unique, but underlying each culture is its own specific -- though usually tacit -- agreement or system that determines how to resolve disputes. This means any dispute resolution should start with a process (either direct negotiation or mediation) where the parties try to solve the problem using interest-based bargaining. Rights-based and power-based strategies for resolving disputes seldom need to be played out to the end. People are creatures of habit, and this is the greatest limit to broad-based systemic change. This debate occurs at such a basic moral level that dispute systems design is unlikely to resolve the underlying conflict.
Thus, disputes over action quickly devolve to rights-oriented disputes, because all interests tend to be viewed in terms of rights.

For example, the human body is a system that relies on interconnected subsystems (nervous, respiratory, digestive, etc.) to enable life. Yet Ury, Brett, and Goldberg argue that some systems of dispute resolution lead to consistently inefficient outcomes,[3] by encouraging and reinforcing actions that are not in the best interests of everyone involved. Instead, it argues that when cooperation breaks down there are better and worse ways of resolving the resulting conflict.
Rather than focusing on what a person can do based on their rights and power, Ury, Brett, and Goldberg argue that actors should focus on what they would like to do based on their own interests. Although they are higher in cost than negotiation, they are less costly than adjudication or violent force. Consultation and feedback mechanisms between parties provide a consistent and reliable method of sharing information. If one has a grievance or a conflict with another person or an organization, first you try to solve it on your own, and then you seek the help of a lawyer, etc. While there may be active resistance from some groups to new dispute-resolution systems, the greater problem is spreading the skills, knowledge, and habits that reinforce the new system. One goal of DSD is to attach different costs to the standard set of actions that an actor might take, so that the actor becomes more likely to engage in efficient behavior. Convincing a person to aid in a task that is not his or her own can take multiple forms, and the forms that are most often used in a system will define that system.
Third parties who work with intractable conflicts often focus on designing new dispute-settlement systems, tailored to the situation, using best practices of conflict resolution.
Only when this doesn't work, do you move on to rights-based processes (such as arbitration) or power-based processes (such as elections).
It is incumbent on the elites in the conflict, and third-party interveners, to provide the resources and time necessary to generate cooperation with the new system. A key task for third-party interveners is to separate the concept of rights from that of interests, in the dispute-system-design process.
In this essay, we first consider dispute systems design as it has developed in the United States (where it was used first), and then examine how these principles have been and can be extended to other countries.
Only if interest negotiation doesn't work, should the parties try a rights-based approach (such as a legal suit).
As soon as it becomes clear who is likely to win, it is advantageous for both sides to avoid the costs and uncertainty of further litigation, and negotiate a solution to their dispute. Minimizing this tendency toward rapid escalation had the added benefit of reducing enmity and increasing faith in the ability of the system to resolve basic disputes. If it was easier for a worker to go on strike than to go through a grievance process, and the likely outcome of the strike was better than that of the grievance process, then clearly the dispute-resolution system in place needed to be redesigned.
This is clearly difficult in cases like the abortion debate, where control of the courts is the pivot point in the power struggle between the two sides. And power-based approaches, such as strikes, should be reserved for those few conflicts that cannot be resolved either through interest or rights-based approaches. The goal of Ury, Brett, and Goldberg's DSD process was to change the costs attached to actions, such that the new process of rapid mediation was the most favorable option. However, there is hope for resolution of less-contentious disputes attached to the abortion debate, which might ease general tensions surrounding the core debate. Given the role that power plays both in creating IGOs and in their operation, the probability of reform to make procedures more congruent with DSD principles seems remote.
