Priorities

From Discovered

The urgency and importance of a goal varies among stakeholders. Stakeholders' relationships to goals are noted with their understanding of these factors. This template is used as a repeating sub-form within the Goal template to capture these relationships.

A sophant or organization may have one of four relationships to a goal:

  • Advance a goal by personally spending time and effort to achieve it, or by personally interfering with efforts to oppose it.
  • Support a goal by providing resources to sophants advancing the goal, or by denying resources to those opposing it.
  • Ignore a goal. (This is the default state.)
  • Oppose a goal by personally spending time and effort to prevent it, or by personally interfering with efforts to achieve it.

The priority that the stakeholder places on the goal is the product ot the urgency (seconds = 10, millennia = 1) and the importance (neccessary = 8, meh = 1). The highest possible priority is a 80, for a goal that is necessary and must be dealt with in seconds.

The table structure is as follows:

{{Priorities
|Goal=Page; parent Goal
|Stakeholder=Sophant or organization with a relationship to the goal.
|Relationship=Radiobutton (Advance, Support, Ignore, Oppose)
