What is prioritization matrix

A prioritization matrix is a tool that helps individuals or teams to prioritize and make decisions by visually mapping out various options or tasks according to their relative importance or urgency. It is a two-dimensional grid that provides a clear and objective way to rank and compare different options.

The prioritization matrix typically has two axes, with each axis representing a different dimension that is important for the decision-making process. For example, the x-axis may represent the importance of a task or option, while the y-axis may represent the urgency or impact of the task or option. Other dimensions that may be used include cost, risk, complexity, or feasibility.
