Clarifying Priorities

Puzzle - puzzle pieces falling from sky

 “It was the first time we agreed on our criteria, visualized how our ideas stacked up, and established real priorities.”  

C. Sushak, Novartis


Do you have more ideas

and initiatives than time

or money to do them all?


The benefits of Priority & Focus are real!

    • Save 30-40% resource time that is wasted switching between too many projects
    • Speed up results 20 — 50% with a critical mass of talent focused on key priorities
    • Enhance your overall return and productivity of invested resources
    • Create agreement on criteria for selection and alignment on critical priorities
    • Assure transparency and sense of “fair process” among stakeholders
    • Clarify the purpose and objectives of each idea in an understandable framework
    • Quantify the key parameters and compare the overall portfolio visually
    • Document decisions and build a system for updating and dynamic management

The only thing worse than putting a good idea on the back burner is keeping everything going and getting nothing done on the great ideas …

A portfolio perspective involves information flow, discussion, debate and ultimately, decision-making across boundaries for the benefit of the enterprise.

Assessing and setting priorities improves efficiency, productivity, speed, flexibility, accomplishment of objectives and return on investment.
