The priority pyramid is a visual prioritization method that helps to make decisions on the most important things to work on. Through limited space the group is guided to filter tasks and agree on priorities.
Step 1 : Sorting Out
Sort out all voted post-its and place them on the pyramid canvas.
Tip: Make sure that you didn't vote on duplicates or that some voted items aren't much the same
Step 2: Visualisation
Place the top voted post-it on the top of the pyramid. Add different layers below according to their number of votes. If post-its have the same number of votes they stay on the same level next to each other.
Tip: Ask if the group agrees to that problem being the most important one to solve
A good example of the Priority Pyramid is to use it as part of a planning meeting. The group can use the three areas of the pyramid to organise all project options and come to a consensus on the priority.
Below, you see an example of what such a priority pyramid could look like at the end. As you can see, this provides a clear visualisation of all options that the group could focus on in different levels of importance.
