At EPA, we employ a straightforward approach:
Emergent P4 Advisors has developed a distinctive decision making process approach that has been able to help with a proactive grassroots mobilization engagement strategy , shared responsibility, active input and co-development that leads to boosting a people first strategy through collaborative problem solving and decision making to provide the political will needed to support projects and plans.
A commitment to an innovative approach for addressing complex and/or amorphous problems or opportunities that are often approached without a commonly supported answer, must begin with a steadfastness to start with a decision making process approach before a plan is created or implemented . Alternatively, a decision making process approach enables partnerships and the community to participate in the vital role of co-development and buy-in through early involvement in the process which results in active input from a diversity of stakeholders, and puts the people in the driver’s seat. The decision making process is aimed to decentralized and more participatory way of making decisions in the co-creation of the ideas and solutions. The goal is to ensure this process will not lead to, or at least mitigate, community opposition and possible derailment of a well- conceived plan.
