SECTION 5:
FUTURE STRATEGIES PRIORITIZATION
31
Exhibit 10 shows the ranking of the 34 strategies by cumulative criteria score. The
cumulative criteria score (y-axis) represents the total benefit or contribution of each strategy to
meeting the weighted decision criteria. Different colors within each stacked bar reflect the
contribution of each of the decision criteria to each strategy’s cumulative criteria score.
EXHIBIT 10
Strategies Prioritization Ranking Chart
It is critical to note that additional judgment must be applied in determining the strategies
to implement, through further review that considers factors that might not be considered in
the prioritization modeling. Also, given the precision in the scoring and weighting
processes, it is often helpful to think of the results as dividing the potential strategies into
priority “tiers”, since it is often useful to think of the relative merit of very closely scored
projects as essentially equivalent.
