The Ideal Decision-Making Process

  1. Free discussion: all viewpoints and different aspects of an issue are openly debated and where everyone has a chance to speak or express their opinions.
  2. Reaching a clear decision. The terms of the decision should be framed with utter clarity.
  3. Everyone involved must give the decision reached by the group full support. This does not necessarily mean agreement: so long as the participants commit to back the decision, that is a satisfactory outcome.

  • What decision needs to be made?
  • When does it have to be made?
  • Who will decide?
  • Who will need to be consulted prior to making the decision?
  • Who will ratify or veto the decision?
  • Who will need to be informed of the decision?
