Technique 2.92 Prioritisation Table/Matrix

Introduction

"...good problem solving is just as much about what you don't do as what you do, and good prioritisation in problem solving makes solutions come faster and with less effort..."\
Charles Conn et al 2018

Sequence

Place factors/challenges, etc in 1 of the 4 quadrants depending upon impact (high/low) and ability to influence (high/low)

Impact
High
1
3

Low
2
4
 
 
Low
High
 
 
Ability to
Influence


Filling in this table demands a focus on factors in quadrant 3 (high impact and high ability to influence) rather than other quadrants. Factors in quadrant 2 (low impact and low ability to influence) should be the lowest priority.

Some prioritisation decisions are easy while others can be hard.

Sometimes the factors will need to be broken down into smaller and more manageable components plus into an apt timescale, ie short term, medium-term, long-term, and degree of urgency (high/low)
