  • Consensus is a decision-making process that works creatively to include all persons making the decision. Instead of simply voting for an item, and having the majority of the group getting their way, the group is committed to finding solutions that everyone can live with. This ensures that everyone's opinions, ideas and reservations are taken into account. But consensus is more than just a compromise. It is a process that can result in surprising and creative solutions – often better than the original suggestions.

  • Consensus Is a Learning Process

    Most of us are well-schooled in deciding by majority rule or having a boss decide. But we've had less practice in seeking the common good together, listening to different voices, weaving together common ideas and concerns, agreeing on a decision that reflects what is good for the group at that time, and taking responsibility collectively for the decision and its consequences. Learning to approach decision-making this way takes practice. Coaching or training by someone with experience in using consensus helps.

  • I write and talk a lot about Enterprise 2.0 and the new cornucopia of technologies that let people come together, interact, and collaborate with virtually no preconditions. No workflows, no set division of labor or roles and responsibilities, no concept of hierarchy. It would be easy to read my book or listen to a few of my talks and come away convinced that I'm some kind of technohippie, dedicated to maximizing human choice, freedom, and autonomy with digital tools.
  • Have you ever lost your important data in a system crash and couldn’t restore it because you didn’t have a backup? Well if yes, then might I don’t have to explain you that not having backup of your important data is like playing havoc with your data’s life. Backing up of important data should be a regular process for any computer user. However if you mistakenly forgot to create a backup and have lost your data in a system failure then the only source of hope is using Recovery tools.
