Tired of endless discussions with your team trying to choose the best options from a list?

Reach group consensus quickly with our straightforward process, only making “this or that” choices.

How it works?

  1. Create a new decision by listing all the options, like backlog issues, project features, email subject lines, product names, hiring candidates
  2. Invite your decision-makers to the voting room
  3. Next Decision will ask the participants to choose between pairs of options using a custom algorithm.
  4. You’ll get a sorted result after a few rounds of voting, depending on the list length and number of participants.

It’s that easy.

Use cases

  • Backlog prioritization: choose JIRA tickets for the next sprint from the backlog (or use our Next Decision for Jira app)
  • Quickly run possible email campaign subject lines by your team members to select the best
  • Shrink a list of 250 product features to a shortlist of 15 a whole team can agree on
  • Avoid “Survey fatigue”, when designing one, by selecting the top 6 questions out of a list of over 40
  • Choose the most agreed-on tagline for your business after the brainstorming session
  • Decide on the next group activity, taking everyone’s choices into account
