Simple unanimity is one where there is no dissensus. It is always an indication of one or more of:
  • a systemic bias
  • a rigged process
  • fear of speaking one's mind
  • a lack of creativity (to suggest alternatives)
  • a lack of courage (to go further along the same road)

A proper consensus decision making procedure, e.g. GROOP, discards any unanimous decision on principle: if there is no dissensus at all, then, insufficient thought has gone into the decision.
