Welcome back to another Wednesday Weekly Planning Hack. This is #24 in the series.
This week’s WPH is about a great prioritization tool using post its. It builds onto last week’s focus of using post its in planning, and in ensuring all voices in a team are represented. In this week’s blog post let us explore another very visual way to prioritize – this time using post its.
Here’s what I wrote about the Planning Matrix in PlanDoTrack and the Coaching Business Builder:
“The prioritization matrix is a quick visual tool where all you will need is some post-it notes or a white board.
First, identify all of the priorities you have, writing each one down on a separate post-it.
Then rate them according to their impact and likelihood of getting them done (or other criterion).
Place them along the matrix of impact and likelihood.
This activity is very visual, and stimulates dialogue amongst the team members themselves. An important part of the prioritization process for teams is about sharing information, and also busting assumptions that might be held. This seems to have the potential to be a great structure for facilitating that conversation.”
