Prioritising tasks and activities

Overview

Last Modified  28 July 2016

Once managers have classified tasks or activities by 'urgency' and/or 'importance' (see Identifying if tasks are urgent or important), this tool helps new managers to prioritise tasks and activities using a simple grid that breaks tasks down into categories of: 
  • high urgency and high importance; 
  • high urgency and low importance; 
  • low urgency and high importance; and 
  • low urgency and low importance.
Tool aim
  • To show managers how to prioritise tasks and activities using a simple grid.
