LOCAL Decisions helps you navigate all phases of the participative decision process. Our unique approach is grounded in theory and proven in practice.
Decision making is a process. Each stage has its own information requirements, roles, and challenges. From eliciting preferences to generating alternatives to modeling potential consequences. Our process is simple, transparent, and reliable.
Communities do not speak with one voice. Individuals have preferences and interests. Our methodology is designed from the bottom up to surface conflict, enable deliberation, and discover paths for compromise.
Meaningful consultation requires multiple approaches and channels. We provide the technology platforms and proven techniques to connect to your community, manage large amounts of information, and transform raw facts into actionable advice.
We construct large n panels composed of diverse members of the community. Everyone who wants to be heard, is heard.
Our process is structured, repeatable, and understandable. All stakeholders can see the relationship between decision inputs and outputs. Decision-making roles and responsibilities are clear and stable.
Our decision process benefits from the wisdom of crowds. We have techniques to tap into the creativity and experience of your citizens.
The infrastructure and expertise for participatory decision-making can be expensive. We benefit from significant economies of scale and can provide sophisticated tools and services at a price your citizens can support.
