Multi-voting is a collaborative method for prioritizing options, ideas, or solutions within a group to facilitate decision-making.
Multi-voting is a technique used to efficiently narrow down a list of options or ideas by focusing on the most important ones. It helps teams reach consensus and prioritize decisions in a collaborative manner.
Generate Options: Start by brainstorming a list of options, ideas, or solutions related to the problem or decision at hand.
List Options: List all the generated options on a board, screen, or paper where everyone can see them.
Assign Votes: Give each participant a predetermined number of votes (e.g., 3 to 5 votes) to distribute among the listed options. Participants can use all their votes on one option or distribute them across multiple options.
Vote Allocation: Participants allocate their votes to the options they believe are the most valuable or feasible.
Tally Votes: Count the votes received by each option. This helps identify which options are the most favored by the group.
Rank Options: Rank the options based on the number of votes they received, from highest to lowest.
Discuss and Decide: Engage in a discussion about the top-ranked options. Make decisions based on the insights gained from the multi-voting process.
Efficient Prioritization: Focuses attention on the most important options.
Inclusive Decision-Making: Involves everyone in the decision-making process.
Consensus Building: Helps teams reach a shared understanding and decision.
Structured Process: Provides a structured approach to decision-making.
