Broad-based decision guidance is the regulation of administrative decisions under advice of the lifeworld.1 This page is a stub. We hope eventually to finish it.

Re-sort the rows by clicking the column headers atop the table.2 Then use shift-click to add secondary sort keys.3 Add a new design to the comparison table either by completing its unresearched data page as listed in the exclusions below, or by creating a new data page for it. Changes to the data will be reflected automatically in the table.4 The data columns are:

Date Date of origin for the design.
Stage of development.
- pre-alpha
a alpha
b beta
c production
Currency Currency of guidance:
c consensus
Δ Is candidate mutable? Yes where marked.
Width. The effective range of formal inter-candidate choice in regard to the guided issue that is always present to an ordinary participant in the guideway:
1 single choice, as with a petition or veto
2 dual choice, typically approval and disapproval
n many choices
unbounded choice
t Temporal continuity of expression for participants:
· punctual, such as a single ballot at an election
durational, allowing changes of expression for a limited period
continuous, no time constraints on expression
The type of administrative decision system that is guided:
←→ any that is guidable at all
electoral an electoral system, single winner or multi-winner
exec an executive officer
legis a legislature
self only, the design is itself a decision system (see interpolations below)
× none, the design is not for the purpose of broad-based decision guidance
n Normative decisions are guided, including laws and plans, but excluding budget plans.
nB Budget decisions other than expense are guided.
nBE Budget expense decisions are guided.
o Single-office decisions are guided, including single-winner elections.
m Multi-office decisions are guided. Included are multi-winner elections. Excluded are decisions in which the number of offices is small enough for single-winner methods. Also excluded are decisions of executive power structuring.5
mE Executive power structuring decisions are guided.


The comparison table, in addition to pulling in designs for broad-based decision guidance, also pulls in those for decision making wherever they are inclusive in terms of participation. Some are actually suitable for broad-based decision guidance, while others might be adapted to that purpose. All are pulled in and interpolated for sake of completeness. The "guided system" for each is specified by a self symbol ↩.

Also interpolated are some non-inclusive designs, including those of the traditional executive, legislature, legislative committee and electoral campaigns. These serve as reference points in the comparison.
