Noise auditing

$2500 per noise audit (ranking survey)

Noise audits reveal the typically large, and usually undesirable, variability – “noise” – in people’s judgments when evaluating the same information, i.e. that would otherwise be expected to result in the same, or very similar, judgments.

A 1000minds noise audit (ranking survey) involves simple case studies of real or imaginary alternatives being presented to participants to rank using their intuition. The revealed variability often points to the need for a better decision-making approach – using 1000minds!

  • AI assistant (to get you started quickly)
  • Proven, peer-reviewed processes for engaging stakeholders
  • Easy to set up, customizable 1000minds surveys, in any language

Preferences surveys / discrete choice experiments (DCEs)

$9500 per survey/DCE

A 1000minds preferences survey, or DCE, involves participants answering questions based on trade-offs between decision-making criteria or attributes to reveal their relative importance.

From people’s answers, 1000minds codifies the relative importance of the criteria/attributes as weights, also known as “preference values” or “utilities”, for each individual participant and on average. These weights are used to rank any alternatives you are considering.

  • Easy to set up, customizable 1000minds surveys, in any language
  • Valid and reliable methodology, including smartphone compatibility
