Ideas are hard to prioritize, like comparing apples and oranges. Both are refreshing and healthy, so which fruit do you select?
With limited resources, it's tough to choose which ideas to pursue. Here's how to select the juiciest ones.
𝗚𝗼𝗮𝗹𝘀. Start with clear, measurable company goals for the year.
𝗘𝘃𝗮𝗹𝘂𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻. Decide feasibility using these criteria:
𝘐𝘮𝘱𝘢𝘤𝘵 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘋𝘦𝘵𝘳𝘪𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵 – What do clients, company, team, and individuals stand to benefit and to lose?
𝘌𝘹𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘔𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘨𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘙𝘪𝘴𝘬 – How can you initially test an idea within a limited context (in order to minimize any potential risk)?
𝘙𝘦𝘴𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘤𝘩 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘖𝘱𝘪𝘯𝘪𝘰𝘯 – Which resources, experts, & team members will provide useful guidance? What can go right and go wrong?
𝗥𝗮𝗻𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴. Apply these criteria to measure how each idea helps reach company goals faster, stronger, and better.
𝗣𝗿𝗼𝗰𝗲𝘀𝘀. Determine who will suggest, evaluate, and rank ideas. Ideally, a small group of 3-5 people.
𝗜𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻. Choose the desired outcomes, milestones, and metrics and measure progress on a specific date.
This methodology promotes ideas to best facilitate growth.
