Strategic Planning

Could prioritizing according to effort and impact be a good way to arrive at a workable to-do list? Might it also help you decide how to delegate the work?

Simplify they way you prioritize complex and competing projects in your practice with a priority matrix. A priority matrix is simple. An x-axis and a y-axis divide an area into four quadrants. The y-axis (vertical) represents IMPACT level. The higher you go, the more impact you expect. The x-axis (horizontal) represents the EFFORT you must spend to accomplish any task or idea. The farther right you go, the more difficult the task.
