The concept screening or Pugh datum method technique is a variant to the decision matrix in which alternatives are compared to an (existing) baseline alternative.

The RINGI Technique is method in which a document with solutions is passed along the table, comments are individually written and a final solution is selected based on the comments. Originally, this document was purposed to go through different hierarchical layers of a company, so that everyone involved could influence the decision.

The cost-benefit table considers the (monetary) costs of a certain alternative and their probabilities. In the given example, there is a 30% chance idea 1 will cost 1000, a 40% change it will cost 2000 and a 30% chance it will cost 3000. This results in an expected pay-off of (0.30*1000+0.40*3000_0.30*4000)-(0.30*1000+0.40*2000+0.30*3000) = 700. To use this […]

Sticky dots is an alternative to voting in which you can stick dots to alternatives. The variant shown above is stoplight voting and includes positive and negative dots.

The Decision Matrix is a technique making use of alternatives, criteria and possible criteria weights. Criteria weights can be determined by intuition and paired comparison. You can also execute this matrix without weighted criteria. If you are using weights, you can decide to distribute a limited number of points over the criteria or compare criteria pairwise.
