…you are getting the whole system in the room.

✣  ✣  ✣

Integrative decision-making, representing all stakes.

Make sure the right and diverse mix of people who “ARE IN” the room:

  • Authority to act, like decision-making responsibility.
  • Resources, such as contacts, time or money.
  • Expertise in the issues to be considered.
  • Information about the topic no one else has.
  • Need to be involved because they are affected by the outcome and can speak to the consequences.

Therefore:

Include the right mix of authority, resources, expertise, information and those affected.
