Ways to present comparison between decisions?



  • For singular subjects it's usually easy to demonstrate a decision's pros and cons for example with a SWOT analysis or similar.

    Is there a similar framework to showcase the pros and cons of multiple choices so that a comparison can be drawn?



  • You can show a table that exhibits the criteria against which you measured each of your decision alternatives with how you scored each alternative against the criterion, using a qualitative ordinal or quantitative interval scale. The example below shows a prioritization method that scores the relative value against costs and risks of four alternatives and the resulting score. Showing this table would explain--at least at a summary level--to stakeholders how you chose an alternative over the others. I have used it many times without issue.
