Lund University Problem formulation: Academically the questions of finding out what constitutes a sound decision base and finding out how to handle the issue of a holistic approach must be addressed in order to make a well balanced and relevant decision model. The core question is which decision criteria to include and which drivers are important in estimating the status of the criteria? Practically to provide Sony Ericsson with a formalized evaluation process for decisions on software development that is transparent, objective and challengeable. Purpose: Academically to contribute to the field of decision making research by elaborating on how to make a holistic, rapid and rational decision model. Primarily for software development
in the handset industry but also valid to other related
industries. The framework needs to support the decision
makers and should also make the reasoning behind the
decisions more transparent. Practically an adaption of the
model for use at Sony Ericsson and evaluate its usefulness to
the organization. Method: Parallel case and literature study to establish the most
relevant estimation criteria. Development of well defined
drivers of the criteria followed by a two stage evaluation:
qualitative interviews and a case evaluation. Conclusions: The contribution to the fields of decision making and estimation primarily lies in the general approach which has
showed a method of building decision models from a holistic
view point. Essential criteria and underlying drivers enabling
faster and more informed decisions have been determined and
the aim of making a normative model is fulfilled by the
synthesis of current practise and theoretical input. The Rapid
Model for Holistic Application Evaluation (RaMHAE)
fulfills its basic purpose by functioning as a ground for
decision making by incorporating the existing organizational
know-how. (Less)
