Abstract : This working paper is one in a series of working papers describing techniques for Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). This series is part of a Corps program to encourage its managers to develop and utilize new ways of resolving disputes. ADR techniques may be used to prevent disputes, resolve them at earlier stages, or settle them prior to formal litigation. ADR is a new field, and additional techniques are being developed all the time. These working papers are a means of providing Corps managers with up to-date information on the latest techniques. The information in this working paper is designed to provide a starting point for innovation by Corps managers in the use of ADR techniques. Other case studies and ADR working papers are available to assist managers.
