Message below from Jean-Daniel that I thought deserves a new thread.
Jean-Daniel, I imagine a number of people might be interesting in
this, not least because a number of us have experimented along these
lines, with varying results. Any thoughts, anyone???
A couple years ago, I adapted the Team Synthegrity process for online
use to eliminate the logistical difficulties that make it hard to
mobilize poeple for several days to meet face to face. It was part of
my Master's thesis coursework.
My intent was to see if TS could be used as a tool to enable citizens
to deliberate on issues that concern them as an input to governments.
Ultimately, this could extend into a new form of governance altogether
where TS, as a System, provides organized input to govern the country
to System 5. As Allende said, system 5 would/should be "the people".
The project worked generally well - actually, really well, for a first
time, with much learning.
I'd love to see it exercised and improved, and was wondering if anyone
here had any interest in pursuing that thought?
