In an interview with Government Computer News, Daniel Rainey, Director of the Office of Alternative Dispute Resolution Services for the U.S. National Mediation Board, makes the case for online dispute resolution (ODR).
Rainey, an internationally recognized authority on ODR, explains how collaborative technology can be used to resolve disputes successfully while saving time and money, as well as to promote online brainstorming and negotiation, streamline the intake process, and facilitate the drafting of agreements once resolution has been reached.
Rainey also discusses the work and upcoming projects of the Interagency Alternative Dispute Resolution Working Group, created to coordinate, promote, and facilitate the effective use of ADR throughout the federal government.
