At some point in your workshop, you will have several alternatives or options (i.e. concepts, prototype, logos, strategies) that you will want to assess and compare. This is where the ratings will come in handy! Ratings will enable you to run a powerful collaborative multicriteria evaluation and analyze the strength of each alternative along several criteria.
You can add as many criteria as needed and even prioritize them by assigning different weights.
If you set-up permissions wisely, you can also make sure rating results won’t be influenced by group biases: randomize the order of the cards, keep participants from rating their own alternative, hide other people’s ratings during the session, etc...
Once your participants have rated the cards individually, you can display the results in one click:
- Assess the relative strength of each alternative with the bubble chart
- Analyze the breakdown of the ratings, by criterion or by user, for each one of the cards.
Some examples of rating criteria
By adding your own criteria, you can run multicriteria evaluations for many different contexts. For example:
- NUF, for new products:
- Real, Win, Worth. For managing an innovation portfolio:
- Is it Real?
- Can we Win?
- Is it Worth doing?
- Risk Evaluation
- For hiring a new employee:
- Technical skills
- Human skills
- A good fit with our company?
