Right now...
the world is suffering
because groups of humans
are making
bad decisions
Decision-making processes are failing
globally
and
locally
.
the right tool
will help groups
BIG
and
small
achieve better outcomes
loomio
is a
user-friendly
platform that makes
group decision-making
easy
Most groups use one of
two basic models
to make decisions
top down
bottom up
decision making
gets things done
quickly
there's a
chain of command
so once a decision is made
it can be implemented right away
but this
alienates
people from the outcome
and can leave the
best ideas
ignored
decision making
everyone
has a say
people are
invested
in the process
good ideas
don't get ignored
marginalized
voices are
heard
everyone
affected by a decision
has
input

But bottom-up decision making can be frustratingly
time-consuming
and inefficient; and it's often difficult to reach clear outcomes
if a group decides
everything
through
face-to-face
discussions,
only one person can speak at a time,
now that we have the
internet,
does it really have to be this way?
with the right online tool, maybe
we could avoid the tradeoff
between
speed
and
participation
and say
YES
to both
loomio
turns a
messy
online
discussion
into a clear, visual picture of how a group feels
everyone can talk at once,
and all voices are heard
while the group stays
focused

on getting to
clear outcomes
adapts to any group
that needs to make
decisions together.
from households
to neighborhoods
from businesses
$
to community groups
and even government
loomio
is a
cooperative social enterprise
We're working to make it easy for
anyone to

participate

in decisions that affect them
using the tool itself to
make decisions
about how it is developed.
We're committed to keeping Loomio
independent
and
free of advertising
and people who attend
the most meetings or
have the
loudest voice
end up having more sway.
...by excluding most people from the process.
Loomio is
open-source software
that anyone can use.
The software development is driven by our user
community

that needs to make good decisions easily,
