(p.66) 3 Leaders— Problem Solving
Ensuring Greater Yellowstone's Future

Yale University Press

This chapter focuses on the problem-solving approach used by the Greater Yellowstone Coordinating Committee (GYCC), its composition and history, survey goals, and analysis of its strategy in engaging the problems that it takes on. Several recommendations seem evident from the analysis as these help diagnose the present situation and suggest what might be done to help leaders and management policy in the future. The forty-plus-year history of the GYCC has shown a very slow trend in the direction of increased coordination in managing greater Yellowstone. The GYCC's goals are insufficiently clear and it could elevate its efforts to harmonize conflicting goals with demands for more sustainable management policy. GYCC is struggling to orient realistically to the multidimensional understanding and addressing of problems, but selecting the option judged to be the best, implementing it, and monitoring its impact are follow-up steps in any complete learning approach to problem solving.
