$54.08 plus tax (Refund Policy)


In allocating scarce resources to a new information system (IS), a non-trivial task becomes the determination of a best priority ranking of the IS's intangible information requirements. Given a set of individual users' rankings of the information requirements, illustrates, through a real-world case study, a streamlined consensus priority ranking (SCPR) method based on a concept of minimizing the disagreement (distance) between individual rankings. Compared to a traditional weighted ranking method, the SCPR method is easy to understand, systematic and requires no weighting methodology. Thus, the SCPR method can help the system development team make efficient decisions when allocating resources for a new information system.
