Impact Effort Map
What is the Impact Effort Map card?
Group together ideas by how much effort they require to create, and by how much impact they’ll have on your goal.
Narrowing down your ideas means that you can focus on what is going to be the easiest and most valuable thing to work on.
How to use the Impact Effort Map card
1. Gather your ideas together and write a name for each one on a sticky note.
2. Draw two axes, with Impact running across the horizontal line, and Effort on the vertical. Make sure it’s big enough to fit all your ideas!
3. Plot each idea on the graph. Discuss each one in turn. As a group, decide how much effort is involved and what the impact will be.
4. Create commitment to your actions with Who, What, When.
