The purpose of this paper is to outline a method or algorithm for finding proposals on which all members of a group can agree. The method is confined to situations where the variables can be changed by any "small" amount and, where the group is attempting to decide on a change in the variables from some "existing situation." The method is applicable regardless of either the number of decision makers or number of variables. It can be used by anyone who is faced with the complicated task of finding a proposal on which all members of a decision making group can agree. Further, use of this method does not require a knowledge of the utility functions.
