NCDD member Juli Fellows recently sent us this interesting resource on collaborative decision-making. The “Collaborative Decision Process” questionnaire was originally developed in the 1980s and 1990s and has been used extensively to assess the effectiveness of collaborative decision processes. Professor Sandor Schuman and colleagues would like to make the questionnaire available to group facilitators as a tool for helping groups improve their collaborative decision making processes.
Preliminary to making it available, they want to collect a broad baseline of data. If you would like to participate in this study, please respond to the survey below. You will be asked to think about a specific meeting (or series of meetings) in which you had a role as participant, facilitator, or observer and respond to the questions with that meeting in mind.
I’ll keep you posted about the dissemination of the Collaborative Decision Process tool for facilitators.
