A decision(1), as made by a human, weighed down by responsibilities and what-ifs - can hardly be compared to a decision(2) as made by a committee, made weightless by the tricks of responsibility-go-away consultants.
Just like the meaning of "consultant" in the above is different from the "consultant" usually used around here.
BTW; I don't think there should be a difference between decisions 1 and 2, I think it's a big problem that some management people try to shirk the responsibilities. They should carry them, it would stop a lot of crap happening.
