There's a field that some people are all calling "Collaboration Engineering". I learned about this from a university course in Collaboration.

6 Patterns of Collaboration [GRCOEB] — Generate, Reduce, Clarify, Organize, Evaluate, Build Consensus

7 Layers of Collaboration [GPrAPTeToS] — Goals, Products, Activities, Patterns of Collaboration, Techniques, Tools, Scripts

The group decision making processes described in the article may already be defined with the thinkLets design pattern language.

A person could argue against humming for various unspecified reasons.
