Decide

 

These methods allow participants to make or contribute to decisions. They range from giving participants complete control over a decision, to getting participants to signal preferences. Some require participants to reach consensus, while others aggregate the choices of individual participants (through a voting system) to reach an overall decision.

Some have a deliberative element built in, requiring participants to spend time sharing and challenging their views with others before reaching a decision. Many have been adapted from offline participatory decision-making processes. They might be used for corporate governance or policy making.
