Make important decisions efficiently, transparently and fairly.

As well as ranking or choosing alternatives according to multiple criteria or objectives, 1000Minds Decision Making can help you with:

  • Prioritization – prioritize alternatives and people in a consistent way that’s easily communicated.
  • Value for money – compare alternatives’ value for money (e.g. projects, investments) and allocate resources.
  • Group decision-making – include as many participants as you like, potentially 1000s.

1000Minds implements our patented PAPRIKA method, which, as well as being scientifically valid, is very user-friendly (see our awards). 1000Minds is fast and scaleable – e.g. depending on your application, potentially 1000s of people can participate.

1000Minds is useful in all sectors, including health, government, business and nonprofit – see our case studies and publications. We can also build or help you build customised decision-support solutions.

We’re honoured that 1000Minds is used for research and teaching at more than 170 universities worldwide – confirming our scientific validity and user-friendliness.

Multi-Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM)

1000Minds is based on MCDM, which involves these three main elements (for an example, see how it works):

  • Alternatives (or individuals) being considered by decision-makers
  • Criteria by which the alternatives are compared
  • Weights representing the relative importance of the criteria

Most decision-making applications involve the process represented below, at least implicitly. 1000Minds is especially useful at the “Model building” and “Challenging thinking” stages.
