= facilitation methodology explained by Sam Kaner in his book.

Sam Kaner himself gives it the full title as the "Diamond of Participatory Decision-Making" (p.20)

Description

"The diamond is a map that points to three phases that groups pass through as they move from questions to insights. Groups begin with divergent thinking, sit for a while in the chaos and uncertainty of “The Groan Zone” and later move into convergent thinking."
