Abstract: The paper presents a comprehensive method for supporting important decisions with long-term consequences for an organisation. The proposed approach combines multiple weighted influence nonlinear gauge system (WINGS) networks into a single model comprising a broad analysis of benefits, opportunities, costs and risks (BOCR). Practicality of the presented solution is demonstrated with the illustrative example of selecting innovation projects.

Keywords: BOCR analysis; innovation projects selection; multiple criteria decision analysis; MCDA; multiple networks; risk analysis; system modelling; weighted influence nonlinear gauge system; WINGS.
