Broad-based decision guidance is the regulation of administrative decisions under advice of the lifeworld.1 This page is a stub. We hope eventually to finish it.
Re-sort the rows by clicking the column headers atop the table.2 Then use shift-click to add secondary sort keys.3 Add a new design to the comparison table either by completing its unresearched data page as listed in the exclusions below, or by creating a new data page for it. Changes to the data will be reflected automatically in the table.4 The data columns are:
||Date of origin for the design.
||Stage of development.
||Currency of guidance:
||Is candidate mutable? Yes where marked.
||Width. The effective range of formal inter-candidate choice in regard to the guided issue that is always present to an ordinary participant in the guideway:
||single choice, as with a petition or veto
||dual choice, typically approval and disapproval
||Temporal continuity of expression for participants:
||punctual, such as a single ballot at an election
||durational, allowing changes of expression for a limited period
||continuous, no time constraints on expression
|The type of administrative decision system that is guided:
||Normative decisions are guided, including laws and plans, but excluding budget plans.
||Budget decisions other than expense are guided.
||Budget expense decisions are guided.
||Single-office decisions are guided, including single-winner elections.
||Multi-office decisions are guided. Included are multi-winner elections. Excluded are decisions in which the number of offices is small enough for single-winner methods. Also excluded are decisions of executive power structuring.5
||Executive power structuring decisions are guided.
The comparison table, in addition to pulling in designs for broad-based decision guidance, also pulls in those for decision making wherever they are inclusive in terms of participation. Some are actually suitable for broad-based decision guidance, while others might be adapted to that purpose. All are pulled in and interpolated for sake of completeness. The "guided system" for each is specified by a self symbol ↩.
Also interpolated are some non-inclusive designs, including those of the traditional executive, legislature, legislative committee and electoral campaigns. These serve as reference points in the comparison.
