Prioritization Notes

The best ideas on how to make a decision on what to do next

Decision Making

Decisions must be based on data. Otherwise, you risk missing vital factors and end up with unsatisfactory results. Use quantitative rankings, charts, and matrices with values directly tied to your customer feedback and product strategy to help you with decision-making.

Make two separate assessments of each task:
  • Is it urgent or not urgent?
  • Is it important or not important?
  • Urgent + Important → Do First.
  • Not Urgent + Important → Schedule.
  • Urgent + Not Important → Delegate to others.
  • Not Urgent + Not Important → Avoid doing.
