Non-profit leaders training in Niagara Falls 2004
In December 2004, sixteen diverse non-profit leaders used an early version of the Dotmocracy process to identify and prioritize issues and outline next steps at the conclusion of a two day national web portal project training workshop.
- 42 proposals were written and discussed
- An average of 12 participants critically judged each proposal
- 30 unanimously accepted suggestions were recognized, 13 of which had strong approval
- Conducted in a single 65 minute session, including instruction and debriefing
The steering committee was able to use the written results of the Dotmocracy process to generate a clear plan of action towards successful project roll-out.
The process used the original sticker version of the Dotmocracy sheets.
A staff member recorded the results and e-mailed them to the group.
People really liked the process. Some quotes...
