Having trouble justifying a decision?
Stop procrastinating and start using Evaluweight !
This started out as a little fun and bit of effort to scam mouser of one of the legendary Cody Mugs. In the end it is a interesting insight into how we come to a conclusion.
Theory: Each decision you make, is a 100 percent commitment. Therefore, that decision can be broken down into categories, and each category represents a part of that 100 percent commitment.
So “evaluweight” lays this all out in a nice and easy grid format. Simply give each category/feature a percentage mark of how it would impact your total commitment.
Now add the product that you want to compare, and in each category, mark that product out of 10 on how it meets your expectation.
I remember using this to “sell” Leadership on making decisions. As part of my pitch, I’d get them to state what was important and how important it was. Then, we’d go thru each factor and give it a weight. And, poof there would be a “decision”.
Then, they’d decide they didn’t like the answer and made their own decision.
Little did they realize that I could have cared less WHAT they decided. All I cared about was that they DECIDED something. Anything.
So here’s a tool. Donation ware — you decide how much it’s worth.
