If there are tradeoffs among strategies, consider whether some goals are more important than others.

Often there is a pri­ma­ry goal that should be giv­en more weight than oth­ers. This can be for­mal­ized by assign­ing weights to each goal through Mul­ti-Cri­te­ria Deci­sion Analy­sis (see Appen­dix J) or you can sim­ply use the min­i­mum goals to select strate­gies that meet min­i­mum goals for each goal.
