An impact-effort matrix is a decision-making tool that assists teams and individuals in selecting the best option based on relative impact and effort. The vertical axis represents the level of influence, while the horizontal axis represents the level of effort. Team members rank their ideas on the matrix based on their level of effort and impact. This placement generates ideas in four categories: quick wins, low-hanging fruit, major projects, and thankless tasks. This is a four-step procedure. Impact Effort, Matrix Tool, Arrows, And Icons are the stages in this process. You can modify the impact-effort axes so that team members can evaluate ideas based on other criteria, such as cost or time.
