Jason Diceman created Idea Rating Sheets, called “Dotmocracy”, in 2004 to make it easier to find agreements in large group. His templates have been adopted by professional facilitators in over 33 different countries and used in more than 15 different languages. Jason Diceman has been a Senior Public Consultation Coordinator for the City of Toronto since 2010 and is a leader in the field of public participation and innovative workshop design.
Jason approached Spark Innovations with the idea of a feedback frame that allows everyone in a large group to give their input equally and efficiently. Where votes are private, anonymous and no one sees the results during the process of giving their opinion. It had to be able to use smallest size tokens for larger groups and larger tokens for smaller group meetings.
Feedback Frames are an amazing large group decision making tool. In a traditional big meeting, workshop or classroom it is often difficult to recognize all the different opinions in the room. Just a few people tend to do most of the talking, while most others may not be heard much at all. Feedback Frames are secret rating ballots with instant visual results. Use them to facilitate equal opportunity workshops that are collaborative, efficient and fun. Find many points of agreements in minutes. No training or technical support required.
