“I suppose if you don’t collaborate you can come with force of arms, creating successes and try repeating that. But that doesn’t happen with the input of others. The issue is: can the results be sustained after a strong individual moves on, and strong individuals do move on.” — Savannah CCYD participant interview
Collaborative decision-making on complex issues is more effective in the long run because stakeholders who are part of an informed decision-making process will be committed to implementation. Consensus building and collaborative processes diminish polarization and power plays that can have long-term negative consequences.
