Conflict of interest, collaboration work
At a round table representatives of the interest groups affected by a project discuss a material issue on a level footing and try to find a common solution.
Unlike other forms of development, the Roundtable Method encourages each person to contribute to the discussion in a collaborative environment, "a roundtable setting."
Key qualities of a round table discussion:
There is no standard procedure for a round table. The essential ingredients are impartial facilitators, keeping minutes of the discussion, and having each group represented by the same number of persons entitled to vote, regardless of their actual / political strength.
Sample structure for a round table discussion:
1 day to 1 several months
