3-2-1. Non-numeric selection techniques

Non-numeric selection methods include techniques that are not based on quantitative techniques. Examples are:

  • The Sacred Cow – What does this mean and and who in the organization is likely to initiate such a project ? What is another name for a sacred cow project?
  • Operating/Competitive necessity– what is the difference between the two approaches and what is likely the source or impetus for the selection of a project based on these techniques?
  • Comparative benefits – This is a useful technique for a first level screening of many different project proposals.
