Possible decision-making methods include the intuitive decision-making. The decision-making is based on one's gut feeling and one's own intuition. When taking decisions on complex issues it is advisable to choose a rational and structured decision-making method as for example the CAF Method (Consider All Facts), the PMI Method (Plus Minus Interesting)
The gut feeling and intuition are certainly important factors when taking a decision. But at work or if the own decision taken will affect others, it may be difficult to represent a decision taken, based on a gut feeling only, towards third parties. A structured and comprehensible decision provides here automatically the necessary arguments in order to represent the decision confidently towards others.
The rational decision-making methods have in common that the various aspects of a decision are to be listed and then weighted in order to make a good choice. This can be solved either by paper and pencil or by using a spreadsheet. Especially when working with a weighted decision matrix, the project may easily become quite complex.
This can be accomplished more simply with the software tool "Decision Making Helper". This decision-making tool based on the weighted decision matrix is supporting the decision-making process in order to take rational, comprehensive, understandable and clear decisions. To find the right decision for the best option will become a child's play without losing sight of the seriousness of the decision-making process. The decisions once taken are reasonable, structured and understandable and can be represented confidently towards third parties.
The decision-making software Decision Making Helper is a program for Windows. The latest version of Decision Making Helper 1.12 runs under Windows XP/Vista/7/8. The decision-making tool can be downloaded free of charge for testing purposes in the languages English, German and French at http://www.infonautics.ch/
