Remote, fast, accurate, distributed team decisions


Published on

A new and unique tool and service. Helps remote teams spread across a country or the World to come to a consensus decision on relative priorities very quickly. Up to 10 team members or sub-groups can prioritise up to 7 projects/areas.

Each team member inputs their views by a simple point and click method during a 30 minute one-on-one webcall with specialists. No data entry required from team. A detailed and highly accurate model is produced of the team view, taking every team members input into account.

Multiple outputs are generated in a report and team presentation via a webcast the next day. What-if models and different scenarios can then be tried out to tune the team choices.

  17. 17. Sponsor inputs name and scope for up to 7 options for team (in local language) using Form1 on website<br />SmartWayToDecide© 2010<br />8<br />
  18. 18. Sponsor inputs names of team using Form2 on website<br />SmartWayToDecide© 2010<br />9<br />
  19. 19. Members inputs for comparisons on Form3 on website... <br />SmartWayToDecide© 2010<br />10<br />
  20. 20. Unique focus on project ratings and team member opinions<br />The tool has a detailed mathematical model that takes each member view into account in a precise way with just a point-and-click input<br />Team members can be shown how their individual input affects the final answer. They will not be able to say their input did not count<br />Uniquely, the team dynamics are also taken into account. Those that have high ratings from other team members, can have a bigger influence on the final answer<br />The sponsor can see how each of the team members are clustered near or far from the final result and work on gaining better convergence<br />It is not just about the team view but also working towards a better team support to go forward<br />SmartWayToDecide© 2010<br />11<br />
  21. 21. What SmartWayToDecide© is not!<br />This is a tool to accurately measure the views using the knowledge, experience and feelings of the team<br />It is not an Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP). They look at a detailed set of criteria, factors, inputs, relationships etc. To build a logical view of the underlying structures in opportunities and potential priorities. AHP often takes more time, input and often facilitation by consultants and is extremely useful for a detailed and logical analysis<br />Smartwaytodecide can be used before embarking on an AHP study and can be used after AHP to get to what the team believes should be done with all the logical inputs, where to look, how they are clustered around the task/outcome (or not!)<br />SmartWayToDecide© 2010<br />12<br />
  22. 22. Logic flow<br />SmartWayToDecide© 2010<br />13<br />More than 8 different outputs prioritising the agreed options<br />Up to 7<br />Options or<br />Projects<br />Rate all pairs of options<br />Rate all members of team opinions<br />Up to 10<br />Team members or<br />Sub-groups<br />What-If?<br />scenarios<br />
  23. 23. Complex calculations performed to give detailed and very accurate results<br />Up to 10 members inputs<br />Across all 21 pairs of 7 options<br />Each member rates all other members for strength of opinion. This is an anonymous input<br />SmartWayToDecide© 2010<br />14<br />
