Priority matrix

This is a time management tool used to prioritise activities.

In the priority matrix each activity (this could be an individual’s to do list’ or an organisation’s operational plans) is assessed based on its urgency and importance to achieving the individual’s or organisation’s objectives. Activities can then be prioritised as Urgent & Important (to be done first), Important & Non Urgent, Urgent & Non Important, Non Urgent & Non Important (to be discarded or done when everything else is complete).

Priority matrix is a term normally found in strategic management.
