Organisations use decision-making models to make faster and better decisions. However, the existing models for multi-criteria analysis do not offer the possibility of involving stakeholders during the whole decision-making process, even if they propose a collaborative platform at all.

The Multi-Actor Multi-Criteria Analysis (MAMCA©) is a decision-making model developed by Prof. Dr. Cathy Macharis to enable the simultaneous evaluation of alternative policy measures, scenarios, technologies, etc. while explicitly including different stakeholders’ opinions at an early stage of the decision-making process.

MAMCA is extremely well suited to complex decision-making processes such as those involved in mobility policies and transport sectors where many stakeholders from several areas and backgrounds are involved.

The MAMCA makes the decision-making processes more efficient, and contributes strongly to critical debates by offering to approach these with a democratic dimension.
