Impact effort matrix
Clearly define the impact and effort of activities to help you and your team prioritize.
An impact effort matrix helps you quickly group activities into four main categories: quick wins that will give you the best return based on the effort required to complete them, major projects that require much more effort to complete but can ultimately provide long-term returns, fill-ins that don’t require a lot of effort but don’t provide much value, and time-wasters or activities that take a lot of time to complete while providing minimal benefits. Categorizing activities in the matrix provides a quick, visual guide to help teams prioritize.
