Revue de presse

"Well written, clear, authoritative and helpful.... This book should revolutionize meetings everywhere--making them more productive, accessible to participants, and facilitating human communication and cooperation.... No one should ever go to a meeting, of any kind, anywhere, again without a copy of Breaking Robert's Rules."--Carrie Menkel-Meadow, Georgetown School of Law

"Blessedly free of jargon andwritten in a brisk and positive style.... Can potentially make a real contribution to how people engage one another on difficult issues."--Michael Wheeler, Harvard Business School

"This book is revolutionary and hilarious. Revolutionary because the authors provide a new framework that will radically change the way organizations make decisions and resolve conflicts. Hilarious because it will remind the reader of every stupid or senseless meeting they've endured."--Warren Bennis, University of Southern California and author of On Becoming a Leader

"This clear guide to non-hierarchal decision-making will be a boon for churches tryiing to find consensus in congregational affairs rather then the traditional solution of majority rule."-- Phyllis Tickle, author of The NIght Offices

Présentation de l'éditeur

Every day in communities across America hundreds of committees, boards, church groups, and social clubs hold meetings where they spend their time engaged in shouting matches and acrimonious debate. Whether they are aware of it or not, the procedures that most such groups rely on to reach decisions were first laid out as Roberts Rules more than 150 years ago by an officer in the U.S. Armys Corps of Engineers. Its arcane rituals of parliamentary procedure and majority rule usually produce a victorious majority and a very dissatisfied minority that expects to raise its concerns, again, at the next possible meeting. Breaking Roberts Rules clearly spells out how any group can work together effectively. After briefly explaining the problems created by Roberts Rules, the guide outlines the five key steps toward consensus building, and addresses the specific problems that often get in the way of a groups progress. Appendices include a basic one page Handy Guide that can be distributed at meetings and a case study demonstrating how the ideas presented in the book can also be applied in a corporate context. Written in a non-technical and engaging style, and containing clear ideas and instructions that anyone can understand and use, this one-of-a-kind guide will prove an essential tool for any group desperate to find ways of making their meetings more effective. In addition, neighborhood associations, ad hoc committees, social clubs, and other informal groups lacking a clear hierarchy will find solid advice on how to move forward without resorting to majority rules or bickering over who will take leadership positions. Bound to become a classic, Breaking Roberts Rules will change the way you hold meetings forever, paving the way for efficiency, efficacy, and peaceful decision making.

HASH(0x8f1270d8) étoiles sur 5 Great tool for developing effective communication 15 août 2006
Par W. Graham - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book has great value whether you are a business owner, politician or public agency staffer, an environmentalist, a facilitator, mediator or any other interested party. It provides a simple, concise and easy-to-understand review of the consensus building process. From a communication perspective, consensus building lends itself towards helping any party in a negotiation develop a greater understanding and wider range of solutions that may be available on any given issue.

The authors frame the limitations of "traditional" Robert's Rules for running public meetings. These traditional methods tend to offer binary decisions (yes or no) which often limit discussion, stifle creativity, and almost always leave someone feeling "left out".

They offer a simple, easy-to-understand and concise method to "break the chains" of communication such that more creative alternatives to issues or problems may be offered and discussed. Through a more creative and contributed process, interested parties can craft decisions based upon informed consensus which lends itself towards more lasting agreements.

The book also offers an excellent treatise on facilitation or mediation techniques. It is useful no matter "what side of the table" you may be in any given issue. A list of Key Terms at the end of each chapter offer an excellent way to reinforce understanding.

Five stars and a great contribution!

HASH(0x8d8f9cd8) étoiles sur 5 Not business as usual 23 août 2006
Par Frank L. Park, Jr. - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I've always been perplexed by the fact that we run our meetings according to rules dreamed up by a military engineer more than 100 years ago. Maybe Roberts' arcane procedures about what can be discussed by whom and when worked once upon a time, but they don't make sense either in the modern business world or for making important policy decisions today.

I'm not sure that the consensus building approach spelled out in this book will necessarily work in every case, but it's clear, straightforward, and practical. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has gotten sick of going to meetings only to see the will of the majority frustrated by some shrewed parliamentarian manipulating the rules. Susskind offers a constructive alternative for people who just want to get the right thing done.

Great book that truly gets to the nitty gritty about why our current standards for making decisions is ineffective and unfair. Also proposes some great solutions. If you are interested in this idea, look up the book We the People: Consenting to a deeper democracy. It tackles the tough issue and takes the solutions to the next level by outlining a revolutionary organizational model and decision making process.

Great read for people who want to participate in a working committee, rather than just preside on a stagnant, inactive, group of by-stander, slackers.
