A decision quality diagram is a graphical display of the inputs you have received for the decision. It provides a high level view of the elements of decision quality, namely the
(i) Alternatives (what you can do),
(ii) Information links (what you know),
(iii) Uncertainties (what you do not know),
(iv) Preferences (what you like),
(v) Pros/Cons (what is good and bad with each alternative), and the
(vi) Bigger picture elements received.
The decision quality diagram shows you very quickly where you need to put more effort.When the shaded region is at the outer edge of the hexagon for a particular element of decision quality, it means you have received sufficient inputs in that area. When the shaded region is closer to the center of the hexagon, it means you need to put more effort thinking about that particular element of the decision.
