JDA(SM) - pronounced “jad” - is a Joint Development Approach technique used to derive consensus among a variety of participants representing multiple, potentially conflicting, perspectives and needs. This highly efficient approach to conducting meetings is optimized to produce solutions that reflect the informed consensus of the group.

Benefits of JDA:
JDA is beneficial whenever consensus is required among a variety of participants. JDA has been effectively used for:
- The work products reflect optimized decisions, not compromised decisions
- The work products produced are of a higher quality in comparison to the time invested
- There are fewer implementation and production surprises
- Participants have buy-in and ownership of the solution
- A common vocabulary and understanding emerges
- “Red tape” and logistical delays are reduced
- Gathering and Analyzing Business Requirements
- Defining and Initiating Projects
- Modeling business processes, objects, or events
- Strategic Planning
- Developing Marketing Plans
- Product Development
