Alternatives Evaluation

"The understanding that underlies the right decision grows out of the clash and conflict of opinions and out of the serious consideration of competing alternatives." - Peter F. Drucker

Agreements between stakeholders are essential in setting direction and establishing a course of action. A clash of opinions results when there is a lack of a structure and method for comparing alternatives. The TIR methodology for evaluating alternatives permits the serious consideration of which alternatives are viable and which are not based on a consideration of how well the alternatives meet certain criteria:

  • Business Objectives (Scope)
  • Time and Cost Limitations
  • Acceptable Risk
  • Technical Context (Technical and Security Standards)
