Compare and evaluate the options you have come up with within the context of identified opportunities, risks, and issues, and make a decision on the option you will follow.

- Cost versus benefit
- Task achievement
- Advantages and disadvantages
- Risk profile
Test the options
Finally double check that the plan meets the original intent.
- Does it achieve the task?
- Does it meet the higher intent?
- Should we be doing this?
