Dotmocracy Website and Handbook
A Canadian project called Coop Tools led by Jason Diceman has been developing and refining the multi-dot voting/consensus process for a number of years, developing a version they now call Dotmocracy. As explained on the Dotmocracy website,
Dotmocracy is an established facilitation method for collecting and prioritizing ideas among a large number of people. It is an equal opportunity & participatory group decision-making process. Participants write down ideas and apply dots next to each idea to show which ones they prefer. The final result is a graph-like visual representation of the groups collective preferences.
A new Dotmocracy website has been launched that specifically supports people wanting to use the Dotmocracy process. Readers can download a free pdf handbook (1.4 mb pdf) and various versions of the worksheets that make the process go smoothly.
