    Consensus decision is a decision making option which involves reaching agreement between all members of a group with regards to a certain issue.  It differs from majority decision making, such as that used in democratic elections, in that, instead of taking a vote for an item where the majority dominates, a group using consensus is committed to finding solutions that everyone can accept.

  3. Making causal claims


    This brief, authored by John Mayne for the Institutional Learning and Change (ILAC) Initiative argues the need for a different perspective on causality. That one can still speak of the intervention making a difference in the sense that the intervention was a necessary element of a package of causal factors that together were sufficient to bring about the results.

  7. What is a Results/Performance Based Delivery System?


    This resource is an invited presentation to the European Parliament committee on regional development. It touches on the questions of what it means to have a results-oriented system; why this is important and what it involves; and how the EU Cohesion policy can move towards this. The presentation emphasises the fact that a results oriented approach is a new way of thinking and managing and necessarily involves placing the focus on outcomes rather than process in all aspects of management and planning. It discusses the appropriate use of indicators in a results-oriented system, while acknowledging their limitations and urging that effective results-orientation needs more than just indicators to be meaningful.
