Multiple Perspective Analysis 

A technique used to review problem situations from three distinct perspectives: the technical perspective; the organizational perspective; and the personal perspective.

(Pal. Leslie. 2006. Beyond Policy Analysis: Public Issue Management in Turbulent Times, 3rd ed. Toronto: Nelson Education, p. 132.)


A technique to review the problem situation from three perspectives: (1) the technical perspective: cost-benefit analysis, econometrics, and systems analysis; (2) the organizational perspective: focus on institutional rules and processes, and following standard operating procedures; and (3) the personal perspective: viewing problems and solutions in terms of individual perceptions and values.
