Event Description

Consensus Decision Making Training day

 Thursday, 29th November 2012

TCPA, 17 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AS

 A course that gives you the skills and techniques to make decisions that reflect the views of a whole community, not just the usual suspects

Making decisions is an essential part of any organisation: for charities, companies, and community groups, involving staff, stakeholders and members is key to the organisation's success. Whether working with 5 or 1500 people you need to be able to harness the knowledge and imagination of everyone to make quality decision that stick.

This course will help you to take decisions in a way that is constructive and collaborative, that reflect the values and knowledge of everyone, and which build a greater sense of ownership of the final outcomes.

This training day will give you a theoretical framework for thinking about consensus decision-making (CDM), and the practical skills you need to put it into practice. You will be presented with two contrasting approaches to CDM so that you can decide which aspects of each one fit your needs and resources.

The day combines presentations, experiential sessions, group discussions and real life case studies.


The training session will provide:

  • The background to consensus decision-making
  • The values that underpin consensus
  • Common obstacles to effective consensus and techniques for how they can be avoided or dealt with
  • Practical techniques for you to develop your own method
  • Detailed case studies that show how the techniques are used
  • A “consensus clinic” where you work out how to use CDM in your organisation or community.
  • Electronic resources to reinforce what you have learned


Course outcomes

  • Fuller understanding of what consensus decision-making is and is not
  • Clear techniques you can apply immediately
  • A sense of where and how they could be applied in your organisation


Who should attend this course?

Anyone that wants to fully engage their staff, members, stakeholders or the wider community in the decision making process.
Organisations already using CDM include: charities, businesses, campaign groups, NGOs, housing associations, community groups, the United Nations and even football clubs.



£288: Large charities, public sector and businesses
£130: Smaller charities (under 15 staff) and individuals.
