Facilitated decision making is a dynamic and iterative process even as it have very defined phases. The phases may begin sequentially but the facilitator is observing always when the group may need redirection or guidance within the process. We have a number of tools that are available to explore and reveal all the information needed for a group to come to elegant decisions. Positive-Sum game theory informs our practice. The theory imagines the way trust and creativity can help us arrive at decisions where no-one has to lose.
