Ever felt stuck in decision-making purgatory with your teammates at work or school? I FEEL you, it sucks!
After interviewing more than 60 startup founders, event managers, and organizational leaders we found out why so many people struggle to make simple decisions when they’re in groups.
The answer is: using too many polls.
A poll for where to go eat, a poll to figure out a time that works for everyone, a poll for everything. Can we PLEASE stop sending polls for every little thing?
Here’s the problem: a Comparison Evaluation Method hinders your decision making ability when in a group. Comparison Evaluation Method, or CEM, is when you analyze different options simultaneously and try to pick the best one among them. Kind of like being at the cereal aisle at your grocery store.
It’s just mentally exhausting.
People would rather wait for others to propose options and then agree or disagree, instead of actively participating in the decision making process. This leaves you and everyone else feeling stressed, helpless, and like you’re wasting your time.
This is why we came up with Squeet. Our technology uses a Singular Evaluation Method or SEM in which you judge one option at a time, based on its own merits. Our research has shown that this method is less mentally exhausting and promotes a higher level of engagement from everyone in the group.
With the Squeet app you can add people to a group and synchronize the likes and dislikes of group members to find an option that everyone likes faster than you’ve ever done before! We created the app to be generic, so your group can decide on interview candidates, lunch spots, restaurants, movies, and much more.
If you are a founder, manager, or leader interested in helping your team make decisions simpler and faster visit us at Squeet.co and download our app from the App Store or Google Play Store. Do you think a Single Evaluation Method is more effective than comparison for large groups? We love to hear your feedback! Feel free to leave us a comment or email us with your valuable thoughts and opinions.
