A (facilitated) group process for decision making: invite objections, and consider information and knowledge revealed to further evolve proposals or existing agreements.
Proposals become agreements when they are considered good enough for now and safe enough to try until the next review.
Unresolved objections prevent proposals from becoming agreements.
Withholding objections can harm the objectives of a team or organization.
Implicit Contract of Consent
- In the absence of objections to an agreement, I intend to follow through on the agreement to the best of my ability.
- I agree to share objections as I become aware of them.
