Beyond Consensus

The MIT Press

This chapter states that consultation between stakeholders and participants, along with information-sharing, play a key role in the success of collaborative efforts. Collaboration involves a wide range of stakeholders from different organizations and agencies involved in collective decision-making. Many other factors, such as restriction-free communication and conflict management, also play a key role in stakeholder deliberation and public involvement in collaborative efforts. Coordinators are also essential in helping stakeholders and participants to build the consensus necessary for a collaborative initiative. An efficient coordinator is an individual or individuals with the desired time and expertise needed to support the consensus-building process, wherein participants are able to initiate a process efficiently and deliberatively without facing any problems.
