A-Team Decision Making Process

The following are accepted principles for how decisions are reached during Administrative Team meetings.

  • A “consensus” model is followed
  • Items requiring decisions are ideally included as agenda items
  • An explanation of the issue and/or decision needed is provided by the agenda item sponsor
  • Questions for clarification are asked and discussion takes place as needed
  • When there appears to be general agreement across the group, the item sponsor will articulate an apparent decision to the group
  • If there is no disagreement, the decision is considered made
  • If there is disagreement that cannot be resolved through further discussion, a vote is taken among members present with majority ruling
  • Robert’s Rules of Order are not used by the team
