    Operating principle 1: Articulate in advance any initiative's purpose/function, process and intended outcomes and institutionalize evaluations based thereon.

    Operating principle 2: Stipulate the kind of talk(s) aimed for in any initiative. Clarify that there are qualitatively different kinds of public interactions, e.g, the Scale of Public Interactions (Inglis & Ross, 2006-2009)

    1. Casual Talk: Telling about isolated events and problems

    2. Opinionated Talk: Asserting views about how things should be and what others should do

    3. Strategic Talk: Influencing, negotiating, and visioning in small groups to create desired outcomes (e.g., if we do “x” then “y” will happen)

    4. Facilitated Dialogue: Providing opportunities to share concerns, ask questions, express diverse views, inquire into others’ views, and seek common ground

    5. Developmental Processes for Comprehensive Social Change: Series of structured public sessions to (a) Identify & analyze problems’ complex roots, (b) Develop multi-stakeholder action-systems to address them, (c) Institutionalize deliberative, democratic decision-making about transpartisan policy and voluntary action, and (d) Sustain ongoing coordination and evaluation of actions

Special Note:

Welcome to the NCDD website. What you see here, in the way of web design and layout is a work in progress. The forum feature works as you would expect, but we have just begun our web re-design and are testing the "bare bones" with this conversation. Many of the links and buttons outside the forum may not work as expected and we thank you in advance for your patience with us.

This re-design marks a new chapter in the online life of NCDD. It began in 1998 with a small online project called the Dialogue to Action Initiative and became the NCDD website after our first national conference in 2002. Beginning in 2009, we are turning our focus to embracing existing tools, instead of creating our own, as a way to further the networking opportunities of our members and offer examples, through use, of the many great tools that are available to us and our community.

Visit the Main Page of our website to learn more about NCDD. Please let us know what you think of the design! Send your feedback to [email protected].
