During

Procedures
1. Decide on the values you are going to use.
2. Create a form on the white board, spread sheet using a projector or on flipchart paper.
3. Walk through the values and come to agreement about how they will be measured.
4. Going through one idea at a time ask, "Does this idea meet this value?" If the answer is yes then mark the intersection of the value and the idea. In the chart above the checks indicate that they do meet the criteria.
5. Note: There are two ways of weighting these. The question can be, "Does this idea meet the value a little, somewhat or a great deal?" Also the values can be weighted. For example value A can have a weight of 3 and value B have a weight of 2 etc.
6. Count to see what the total is. In the weighted version the weights are included in the count.
7. Discuss to confirm that the results of the evaluation are correct.
