Impact & Effort Matrix

Possible actions are mapped base on two factors: effort required and potential impact. This is useful after a brainstorming session like 3-12-3 Brainstorm
Facilitator Instructions:
1) Create a goal: Write a goal in the form of a "What to do" or "What we need" question in the yellow highlighted text.
2) Generate Ideas: Let everyone brainstorm by clicking on the "Add an Idea" button to write their ideas. Once everyone has finished writing their ideas, check the "show all players' ideas" to reveal everyone's ideas.
3) Identify matrix location: Have players drag and drop their ideas in the Impact/Effort matrix. Ideas that are high impact/low effort are green.
