PMP Group Decision Making Techniques for Project Managers
I liked this picture summarizing the group decision making techniques very well. It emphasizes on the differences between each method to make clear in readers minds.

Unanimity: Every group member agrees to the same decision. Everyone in the activity group should come to an agreement.
Majority: At least half of the group members should agree on the same result. More than the fifty percent of the group members are necessary to make a decision for the name of the group.
Plurality: 50% of a group is not required in this case. Instead the decision is taken by the biggest block of people that come to the same result within the activity group.
Dictatorship: There is person who has the authority to take the decision for the all group members. The other ideas mentioned be other group members is not important.
