I never did like that term and I liked it even less that when refereed to in meetings especially planing meetings . It was deemed to be a win-win when consensus was reached. It is far from it. It is a lose-lose term. No one wins, and it all boils down to the lowest common denominator when ever it is used. There is no win-win in consensus, and people that think there is are a well educated individuals who have passed the buck to the loudest voice or the masses.
Consensus gives people an out to do the wrong thing. The ultimate of the lessor of two evils.
