You can build your own Decision Models from scratch or customise ones from our ‘library’. What used to take months (even years!) can now be done in minutes or hours, and revisions and up-dates are quick and easy.

There are also tools to enable decision-makers to consider, when appropriate, alternatives’ ‘value for money’ and allocate budgets (in addition to ranking alternatives and revealing decision-makers’ preferences).

1000Minds decision processes - 1000Minds

Participants’ answers to the questions, their preference values, and their rankings of entered alternatives and of all possible alternatives representable by the decision model used can also be compared. Their answers reveal participants’ individual preference values, and also ‘on average’ for the group – representing the relative importance to them of the criteria they were asked about.
