Priority Matrix

The Priority Matrix (from Management Sciences for Health) is a tool for organizations to use in setting priorities. The Priority Matrix helps participants rank actions based on their time to complete, cost, importance to quality, and availability of resources. This tool can be used to prioritize strategies and actions as part of developing an action plan. It assumes that participants have completed a root cause analysis first, so that the selected actions address the root causes of the problem and not just the symptoms.

Attached are the blank Matrix and instructions for its use.
