JLBC LEADING THROUGH CHALLENGES
JLBC Keeping objective
A weighted assessment will clarify the criteria you can use to make a decision and give your decision transparency.
In this simple example, a decision has to be made to adopt one of two projects—A or B; both seem attractive and have similar costs. To carry out the assessment, first, engage with your team to make a list
of criteria that the projects should satisfy. Not all standards are of equal importance, so give each one a score from 1 to 10, depending on how valuable the team considers it to be. Check that the criteria are rounded—not all skewed toward finance, for example. Score each option (A and B) out of 10 on each measure, and multiply each score by
its corresponding weighting. Add the scores to see which project fulfills the criteria best.
