Measured Criteria

You can use this technique in combination with the T-chart.  With this technique, you list the criteria you want your decision to meet and assign points to each criterion based on its relative importance in the decision.

Then you give each alternative a certain number of points according to how fully it meets the criterion.  You can use a scale of 1 to 10, 1 to 100, or any other range that makes sense to you.

This technique can be made infinitely sophisticated.  In the corporate world, I have seen several hundred page documents along this decision-making path.  To make the decision, you summarize the points to see which one comes out best.
