Analytic Hierarchy Process Framework (AHP)
What is the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) Framework?
The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) Framework is a decision-making tool designed to help stakeholders compare the importance of criteria, two at a time. It was developed by Thomas L. Saaty in the 1970s, and since then it has been refined to provide a step-by-step process for group decision-making. The AHP Framework includes a step for calculating numerical priorities, and another step for selecting the option with the highest numerical priority. By using this framework, stakeholders can make decisions that are aligned with their strategic goals; research shows that such decisions are 57% more likely to achieve their business goals than those made without using AHP.
