English term or phrase: Authority rule
DECISION BY AUTHORITY RULE:
Many groups start out with--or quickly set up a power structure that makes it clear that the chairman (or someone else in authority) will make the ultimate decision. The group can generate ideas and hold free discussion, but at any time the chairman can say that, having heard the discussion, he or she has decided upon a given plan. Whether or not this method is effective depends a great deal upon whether the chairman is a sufficiently good listener to have culled the right information on which to make the decision. Furthermore, if the group must also implement the decision, then the authority-rule method produces a bare minimum of involvement by the group (basically, they will do it because they have to, not necessarily because they want to). Hence it undermines the potential quality of the implementation of the decision.

'decision by authority' rule

I am of the same opinion, as Andras, as to the 'splitting' of the sentence, ie It is a rule of 'decision by authority'.
What I understand of this is the following :-
Suppose there are 4 judges to judge an event (dancing with the Stars!!!!???) One of those judges is a Senior Judge, i.e. has more authority than the other 3. If two judges vote 'Yes', one judge votes 'No', then if the Senior (casting) judge votes 'No' you have 2 'yeses' and 2 'nos'. However, because the Senior judge has more 'Authority' the motion result is 'No'
