This ½ day workshop will examine what weighting is for, the issues surrounding weighting and will look at some methods that can be used to create weights that will increase the likelihood of arriving at the best decision. The process of weighting involves emphasising some criteria more than others. The output of the weighting process is a set of criteria where each criterion has a different impact on the result. What is it that makes one  factor more important to a decision than another? When trying to determine weight,  how should the decider go about choosing which criteria are more important? There are many methods available, each with its pros and cons, and there are also legal implications to consider.
