This technique tries to sharpen a result to the best ten values through a permanent reduction (of ideas, statements, aspects and properties). Especially within long-term and highly complex innovation projects, one often has to deal with a flood of ideas or facts and statements in almost all phases.

Especially during the first months of the introduction and on the wave of euphoria and the new, there is often a flood of ideas or statements. With TOP 10 you consistently work on selecting the best. This technique is actually to be seen as a kind of supplementary technique. It can be excellently combined with many other evaluation techniques.
