Establish Context Create a decision
Take time over “establishing context” with others who have an interest in your decision.
Asking the right questions sets up the right answers.
Clarify your objective, goal or aim
– then explore all options to get there
TIP – The default Criteria are shown above – The app allows you to change these. (Add, Delete)
TIP – A lazy way to not include a criterion in graphs and reports is to set the weighting for it to zero

Evaluate Options
Apply weighted criteria
Using the microphone – or are you “still typing”?
“Question to the void” – press home why the gap between some points is like it is – share the screenshot
Implement Plans
Action preferred options
We only evaluate things in order to better do something about them.
Your action plan should be focused, minimalist.
Yes, as simple as possible – as complex as necessary
The importance of monitoring and refinement is significant.
Good planning is an ongoing process
