This paper discusses the quantification of preferences over ten major objectives of a corporation. The objectives concern personal, professional, and financial goals. The procedure used to elicit a ten-attribute von Neumann-Morgenstern utility function from a board member of Woodward-Clyde Consultants is presented. First the objectives and associated attributes are specified. Then the actual assessment is summarized. Uses of the results for examining policy are discussed.
