Decision Making - Tools and Components
This is a big topic on which many books have been written. I offer some basic principles that I’ve refined and used over several years as ways to think about decisions, and to make better decisions.
I offer an approach and specific “thinking tools’ I use when working with companies or NGOs to help them make good marketing decisions. I’m talking about market targeting decisions, brand positioning, product portfolio, investment in innovation, pricing, distribution channels, and promotion (content, messaging, ad strategy). The approach and tools I suggest here, however, are applicable for most high impact decisions.

TechCrunch VC Rankings

Chris Farmer, a VC at General Catalyst Partners, has come up with a method which he calls InvestorRank. Just as Google’s PageRank orders search results based on how many links each page gets from other sites, InvestorRank looks at the connections between VC firms. Whenever two VC firms co-invest in the same deal, that creates a bond between them. If one VC firm follows another one in a later round, that boosts the rank of the earlier investor.

The more that a VC firm invests in syndicates with other highly ranked firms or even before they do, the higher its InvestorRank. There is some research which suggests that mapping out the network of investors is a better way to predict performance. InvestorRank is not based on previous returns. Rather, it is based on how connected and trusted a VC firm is.
