For many years, we have used the weighted scoring model to help clients make decisions about project portfolio balancing, technology selection and other business decisions. Over those years, we have noticed a “hole” in the process where the results did not show the true story of the model. We noticed where the winning solution might not meet one of the critical criteria of the model. Of course, we made the client aware of the shortcoming and discussed ways to overcome the issue.
