To Illustrate how the decision matrix works, let’s say SesiWeb, a web design company wants to decide on which web hosting platform to use for their clients. They search online for possible solutions and after researching and reviewing each possible solution, they narrow the list down to four choices and decide to use a decision matrix to rank each solution.
They decide on key specifications and rank each possible solution on a scale of 1 to 5. Here is what their decision matrix will look like.
So after the analysis, SiteNinja.com gets the highest points so SesiWeb decides to buy hosting from SiteNinja.com and they arrived at this through a good decision making process.
Follow the process and you’ll have a good chance at making better spending decisions for your business.
Making spending decisions is an integral part of running a business and is critical to your success. It is essential that you learn how to make them right.
