Prioritization Matrix

A prioritization matrix can help an organization make decisions by systematically comparing choices through the selection, weighing, and application of criteria. This prioritization matrix can be used to: quickly surface basic disagreements, so disagreements can be resolved openly; force a team to narrow down solutions from all solutions to the best solutions, which are more likely to increase chances for successful program implementation; limit “hidden agendas” by bringing decision criteria to the forefront of a choice; and increase follow-through by asking for consensus after each step of the process.
