Resist-Accept-Direct (RAD) Management Framework

Detailed Description

The RAD Framework lays out three approaches for making management decisions for systems undergoing ecosystem transformation: 1) Resist, where managers work to maintain or restore ecosystem composition, structure, processes, or function on the basis of historical or acceptable current conditions, 2) Accept, where managers allow ecosystem composition, structure, process, or function to change autonomously, and 3) Direct, where managers actively chape change in ecosystem composition, structure, processes, or function toward preferred new conditions.
