Fist Of Five

Technique used to test for consent in a consensus decision making meeting. Since consensus prohibits voting, fist-of-five usually only comes after all discussion has completed. As such, it's mostly just a formality; but a way to test if there is still anyone who has unaddressed concerns.

  1. One finger = serious concerns that have not been heard or addressed
  2. Two fingers = still have unaddressed concerns
  3. Three fingers = consent with major reservation
  4. Four fingers = consent with slight reservation
  5. Five fingers = full consent

Holding up zero fingers constitutes a Fist Block which is the strongest form of dissent.
