If we collect many ideas and project proposals can you recommend a way to choose one of them? There are several models for example
Each person chooses the preferred choice and that is all. The choice which gets selected the most wins and becomes the project, similar to a democracy with one vote for every individual
Each project member puts a score on every idea on some preselected scale so that every idea gets a score from every project member and the winner is the one with the highest score
Each project member has a predefined number of points to distribute among the alternatives and can give all the points to the same alternative or distribute the points equally or any way (s)he likes, but cannot exceed the budget of points (similar to "dot-voting" which is often used in software development teams)
Are there any other good ways to select a project (or a theme) and which should we use? I previously used dot-voting in every or almost every team in recent years, but now I am in a team where they have decided to score every idea on a scale instead and then select the idea with the highest score. I have doubts which approach is more fair or if they result in different outcomes.
