How to make the right decision

The PrOACT (Problem, Objectives and Measures, Alternatives, Consequences, and Trade-offs) Structured Decision-Making framework is a method for creating a clear and concise summary of a problem and the possible solutions to it so that you—or a senior decision-maker—can clearly see the consequences of each choice.

What can I do?

Step 1: Define the Problem – And just how big is this going to be?

Step 2: Specify the Objectives and Measures – What really matters, what is it you need to decide and how will you know if that was a good decision?

Step 3: Create Alternative – This is when you get your thinking cap on – ideas, ideas, ideas – more than one way to eat Kit-Kat!

Step 4: Identify the Consequences – Whatever your options now are – what ripple effect will they have and on whom?

Step 5: Clarify the Trade-Offs – maybe this isn’t a win-win situation (ha I hate that saying) – so what do you need to give up in order to get what you need. Always check it goes towards solving your Step 1: Define the Problem.

Decisions are tough. But at Betterr we collect, reduce, decide, move on.
