Round-Robin Ranking

How to make a decision with Round-Robin Ranking?

Round-Robin Ranking (RRR) is a creative thinking tool helping to manage tasks/options/items priority and make decisions:

  • Cherry-picking between a number of different options/items
  • Ranking of different tasks/options to achieve your target

RRR tool is based on the concept that we cannot reasonably choose one best option out of the number of possible options. Our brain can compare and make a choice out of two options only. Therefore, RRR tool drives us to make a comparison by all possible combinations of couples. Based on your choices the system sorts the options by ranking and defining the “winner” options. RRR is an excellent tool for priority definition.
