Criteria influence decisions structurally by opening an assessment dimension (but without specifying the direction of the decision).
Criteria combine experience. They offer aspects for which a problem can be analyzed, a solution selected and the achievement of goals evaluated. In addition, they offer opportunities for impartial evaluation and thus initiate a continuous improvement process.
The questions for reflection and the justification based on pre-defined criteria are:
- Relevance: Which criteria are relevant in the individual need situation?
- Rating: How can the individual rating be divided into an all-party, i.e. measurable or verifiable description transferred?
