A go/no go decision is used to decide between two options. Managers of products or departments in large organizations often use such checklists because of the gravity of the consequences that could result from a wrong choice.

When making a major decision, it is important to weigh the benefits against the drawbacks and determine how much risk is acceptable.

Where would you use a Go/NoGo checklist?

When a major new product development is ready for production, a go/no go decision is most helpful for planning or scoping the deployment. Often, the outcome is decided by the go/no go decision process, which can lead to a deadlock if one action is no longer possible because it goes against a principle or 'rule' that must be met for the product to be successful.
