Without buy-in some decisions may never occur. Having balanced input from all participants, and undertaking a collaborative approach not only increases organizational and stakeholder buy-in but it also facilitates a global decision that may not have otherwise taken place.

Decision are difficult to begin with, why make them more difficult and time consuming than they have to be. Formulating faster, better, and more justifiable decisions is always desired. This can be achieved through a disciplined approach.
Along with justification, consistency is also critical. Decision need to be repeatable, reviewable, and revisable, if they are not, you may need to reassess your process.
