The Lockwood Analytic Method for Prediction (LAMP):

15 January 2002

An Innovative Methodological Approach to the Problem of Predictive Analysis

briefing sequence
Briefing Sequence
  • Background of LAMP
  • Philosophical basis for LAMP
  • The 12 Steps of the LAMP Process
  • Limitations of the LAMP
  • Potential Applications for LAMP
  • Conclusions
background of lamp
Background of LAMP
  • Developed by Dr. Jonathan Lockwood in 1992 while in DCI Exceptional Intelligence Analyst Program
  • Utilized by numerous graduate students in JMIC as core methodology in Masters Degree theses
  • Software exists in early prototype only
  • First published in Defense Intelligence Journal in Fall 1994
philosophical basis of lamp
Philosophical Basis of LAMP
  • THE FUTURE IS:
    • Not Predetermined
    • The Sum Total of All Interactions of Free Will
    • A Dynamic Spectrum of Constantly Changing Relative Probabilities
the 12 steps of lamp
The 12 Steps of LAMP
  • Determine the Predictive Issue
  • Specify the Actors Bearing on the Problem
  • Conduct in-depth study of perceptions and intentions of each actor
  • Specify courses of action for each actor
  • Determine the major scenarios
  • Calculate the number of alternate futures
the 12 steps of lamp continued
The 12 Steps of LAMP (Continued)
  • Do pairwise comparison of alternate futures
  • Rank order the alternate futures
  • Analyze consequences of alternate futures
  • Determine focal events for alternate futures
  • Develop indicators for each focal event
  • Assess the potential for transposition between alternate futures
limitations of lamp
Limitations of LAMP
  • Exponential explosion problem with alternate futures
  • Analyst can identify “most likely” future, but cannot assign a quantifiable probability of occurrence for each future
  • Little allowance for ambiguity
potential applications for lamp
Potential Applications for LAMP
  • Indications and Warning
  • Estimative Intelligence
  • Common analytical method for intelligence
  • Computerized analytic tool kit
  • Training
  • Interface between intelligence, academia and public policy communities
  • Tactical intelligence (?)
conclusions
Conclusions
  • LAMP does not grant the gift of prophecy
  • LAMP is not an infallible method
  • LAMP does provide a logical and powerful method for analyzing the future’s many possible paths
