As we step into the end of May, I thought it would be useful to reach back to one of the posts from last May on Prioritization.
One of the most disruptive things about disruption is the impact on our focus. Prioritization becomes a key skill set to cultivate.
Here’s what I wrote last May about leading in complexity -
“Prioritization is a skill set we draw upon regularly in times of complexity. Prioritization allows all team members to regularly scan and manage their workload.
Key to prioritization is:
- Having the tools to prioritize
- Feeling empowered to make decisions and take responsibility for managing workload
- Understanding what is most important – to the different players of the team, as well as the different time frames you are working on (short term, medium term)
For more on the topic of prioritization, check out these additional resources:
This excellent article from MindTools.com - which has an incredible amount of other resources team members and leaders will also want to check out.
LiquidPlanner.com's article on How to Prioritize Work When Everything Is #1 - Read it here."
For those that are looking at prioritization through the lens of product design, you'll want to take a look at this excellent article 20 Product Prioritization Techniques.
In my books PlanDoTrack and the Coaching Business Builder I share four prioritization tools I use regularly with my clients and teams including the Urgent/Important Matrix and Strategic Issues Mapping.
The issue of prioritization takes on increased importance when we are working as part of a matrix or remote team. In these instances, our priorities may be varied and not as visible to ourselves and others. What is important for you to note around prioritization?
