From: The Decision-Making Task Force report, UCV’s Redevelopment Exploration 2016 –2020:
A Review of the Process with Lessons for the Future
- Is there trust and support for the leadership of the project? Is there a process to build trust and robust buy-in for the leaders’ decision-making?
- Is there explicit commitment from all members to trust in the good intentions of everyone involved?
- Is there transparency of the board’s processes and role in the project?
- Is the minister’s position on the project clear (or are their reasons for not taking a position clear)?
- Is the board sufficiently involved so that when a new board is elected, there is institutional memory of the status and history of the project, sufficient continuity of board members, and a clear record of the board’s actions regarding the project?
- Do all members agree that regardless of how well they have followed or engaged with the process, they will respect the leadership and authority of the planning team, and will go first to that team with any concerns? Then, if not satisfied, do all agree they may next approach the overarching body?
- Do all members commit to trust that the project leadership will be the point of contact with outside consultants, and agree to go through the project leadership team with any questions or concerns?
- Are those who facilitate group processes trusted to hold all points of view with equal care?
