Behavioral Terrain Mapping (BTM): Dynamic Behavioral Science Support to Global Markets, Philanthropic Ventures, Conflict Zones, and Global Development

Human behaviors are universal, but are widely misunderstood by the very people who need to understand them the most. ImageThe ‘behavioral and social terrain‘ of the human landscape is extremely relevant, and it applies across the range of development and conflict around the world, from giving aid to a US town or Peruvian village to negotiating with a Taliban warlord.

This forum includes a targeted emphasis on the sociocultural and economic aspects of human problems in the Defense, Humanitarian and Economic Development sectors.

We employ ‘sociodynamic’ and behavioral-dynamic modeling to large events and issues, from domestic politics to war effort in Afghanistan. Finally, looks at the impacts and potential positive uses of social networks, macrowikinomics, emerging markets and human and social capital, and includes a special focus on New Philanthropy and Humane Capitalism.
