You must be clear in outlining what criteria you used to come up with this decision. You must also convey to us why you feel that you came to the best possible decision. Did your group follow a specific method of decision making? Convince us that your solution is the BEST by showing us how you came to this decision! I’m just going to keep on writing now to see if you are still reading this or if you gave up after having read the first bit.
