A decision-making framework

I confess that I haven’t really used this framework much for making decisions, as many of my decisions have to be made rapidly on the fly. Other decisions are usually made during meetings, and are based on group concensus rather than me dictating a one-sided decision.

However, this framework could be useful:

  1. Set objectives (what needs to be achieved)
  2. Set the decision criteria (realistic SMART criteria for a successful outcome)
  3. Compare the options (assess each against the decision criteria)
  4. Select the preferred option (based on step 3)
  5. Plan the implementation (ensure it is SMART)
