MDQ STEP FOUR AND FIVE: DECISION MATRICES AND FINAL DECISION
The purpose of Week 7’s Brainstorming Discussion is to Evaluate and Make the Decision by comparing the alternatives based on the objectives.

This process is achieved in Step Four by creating two decision matrices –
unweighted and weighted.

Step Five involves Assessing the Decision Process, which is where Harry will state the final decision and how it fulfills HH’s objectives by examining the MDQ process in how that final decision was derive d.

BY FRIDAY, complete the following:
Explain the purpose in using decision matrices in Step Four of the MDQ.
Use a scale of 0 – 3 to rate the first decision matrix.

(0 being does not meet the objective well to 3 being meets the objective well).
The decision matrices must have the four objectives and four alternatives from the previous week’s discussions.

Post the first decision matrix in the text box (unweighted). Do NOT use attachments.

Explain WHY and HOW Harry derived the ranking of the objectives and alternatives (each of the individual numbers) in the first matrix.

Review the Example using MDQ: Which House Do We Purchase?
Use weights that total to 100% for the second decision matrix.

Post the second decision matrix in the text box (weighted).

Explain WHY and HOW Harry derived each of the weights for the objectives.
Based on the results of the Decision Matrices, evaluate and analyze all of HH’s alternatives and objectives.

State the final decision by explaining and justifying it with the numbers in the matrix. The final decision is based on the matrices!

Discuss Step Five: The Final Decision. Explain HOW the final decision (chosen alternative) fulfilled Hannah’s Hat’s objectives.
