When formal decisions are necessary we shall use the consensus decision making process rather than parliamentary procedure. Consensus is defined as: An opinion or position reached by a group as a whole.

Advantages of consensus decision making:

  • Consensus promotes cooperation, whereas parliamentary proceedings promote competition.
  • Decisions reflect the will of the entire group, not just the leadership or majority.
  • Members choosing to implement the plans are more satisfied with their tasks.


You can learn about the consensus decision making process from File:On Conflict and Consensus.pdf.
