Design Planning and Decision-Making Processes with “Outreachability” in Mind

When designing planning and decision-making processes, one of the criteria should be “does this support the level of collaboration to which we aspire?” If differing planning or modeling approaches score similarly for cost effectiveness, relevance, and planner or scientific acceptance, then the approach that lends itself more readily to wider collaboration (and if wider collaboration is a goal), then that approach should be chosen. Likewise, once a planning or scientific approach is chosen, thinking early about each step “how will this support various levels of participation?” will provide for a much stronger synergy between good science, good planning, and good collaboration.
