Advice Process

Gathering perspective before executing a proposal

About

The Advice Process enriches decision making and is a great companion of Do-ocracy. Community members are encouraged to take initiative anytime a problem or opportunity is identified. Using the Advice Process is easy and consists of identifying who are the experts or the people who will be affected by what is being proposed, directly requesting their advice and incorporating their feedback where it's appropriate according to the proponents discernment.
