Practical Application: Eisenhower Decision Matrix Infographic

Instructor: Amanda Robb

Amanda holds a Masters in Science from Tufts Medical School in Cellular and Molecular Physiology. She has taught high school Biology and Physics for 8 years.

This infographic will help you put the Eisenhower decision matrix into action. Here, we'll briefly explain how supervisors can use this matrix for effective problem solving and then look at the infographic.

The Eisenhower Decision Matrix

In the Using the Eisenhower Decision Matrix to Prioritize Tasks lesson, you learned how this model can help with daily decision-making. As supervisors, we need to make many decisions each day, which can be a daunting task. Having a template for evaluating our choices can help, and this is where the Eisenhower decision matrix comes in.

Here, the matrix is laid out as an infographic that will help you decide which tasks are the most urgent and important and take immediate action to get them done quickly and effectively. Start by evaluating the tasks and determining if they're urgent or not, and then follow up by identifying which ones are important, or not.

When identifying the tasks, please note that:
