Decision Integrity (DIL) is a research and coaching enterprise working on holistic
approaches that benefit sustainable systems, projects, communities, organisations
and societies with special emphasis on transformative resilience.
In a genuine dilemma there is an entanglement between the two values and their associated
situations because the dilemma itself is a manifestation of a deeper structure. In
fact, the underlying structure is a systemic one in which unseen feedback loops create
unexpected consequences. If the advocates of rock values “win” (that is dominate)
then at some point in the future the feedback from the whirlpool realities will catch
up and cause defeat. If advocates of the whirlpool values prevail then sooner or
later the rock realities will catch up and cause defeat. Dilemma resolution requires
a dynamic and non-linear process that emphasises ‘both/and’ rather than ‘either/or’
by a process we call the dilemma dance.
