Combining Results

Once you have collected all of the inputs regarding areas to survey and their relative value, they need to be combined to determine a final list. This is relatively simple if you feel all sources provided the same value of information. Here, you only need to identify frequencies of responses and the numerical value for each.

A form for combining responses is shown in Figure 5-4. The procedure is to begin with the responses from one person or group. List those responses in the first column of the form. List those with a 3 rating first. Then list the 2's, and finally the 1's. Write the appropriate evaluation numbers after each area in the second column.
