Like the Advice Process, accountability is clear when using a Mandate protocol. However, it cannot offer anywhere near the same level of collaboration or transparency. With collaboration – including advice from experts and those motivated to contribute due to the impact on them – the quality of decision making will only increase. And with transparency, the decision-maker will be motivated to make the best decision possible, and be prepared to own it. For us at Equal Experts, it’s just not acceptable to do away with either of these aspects.
