When a Decider vote yields a small minority of dissenters, the proposer quickly leads the team, in a highly structured fashion, to deal with them. The Resolution protocol promotes forward momentum by focusing on bringing dissenters in at least cost.


  1. Proposer asks dissenter “What will it take to get you in?”
  2. Dissenter states in a single, short, declarative sentence the precise modification he or she requires to be in.
  3. Proposer offers to adopt the dissenter’s changes or withdraws the proposal.
