A more complex problem brings a couple of alternatives, and choosing from more than 2 options makes it harder for us!
Take the problem of looking for a new office to work from! The thing is to choose the ideal location. But first let´s find out what ideal means:
Ideal means you are going to work in a location where it´s easy for you to drive and park your car, where your clients have easy access, where office service is placed closed-by, plus the office and its monthly cost both match your budget.
Here´s how you approach to your solution – use a consequence table and add different measurement scales:
Now you get an idea what choosing from various options means! It´s important to write it down in detail, just to avoid surprises after signing the contract.
You might consider starting with the dominance of the 2 most relevant items. It could be the access of your clients and the monthly cost you will have to deal with. (Hint: in terms of the monthly costs you have to add the parking costs as well.) This should give your choice a clear kick at once!
You can use a ranking for your first overview! ….. which location is still in the game now?
Maybe you have a certain room-style or -design already in mind because you know where you love to work all day – this will influence your choice as well.

BE A DECISION MAKER. BE OUTSTANDING.
