included in 90-min, Half Day & Full Day sessions
  • Priority Matrix Simulation: Participants engage in a simulation where they are given a set of tasks with varying levels of importance and urgency. They must categorize and prioritize these tasks using a priority matrix (e.g., Eisenhower Matrix) to allocate time and resources effectively. This exercise provides hands-on experience in applying prioritization strategies.
  • Time Blocking Workshop: Participants work on creating a time-blocked schedule for their typical workday during the session. They identify their high-priority tasks and allocate specific time blocks to focus on them. This exercise encourages participants to implement time management and prioritization techniques immediately.
  • Real Work Scenario Prioritization Challenge: Participants are presented with real-life work scenarios or case studies that involve a mix of tasks and deadlines. They collaborate in groups to prioritize the tasks based on importance and urgency, considering limited resources and time constraints. This exercise promotes critical thinking and practical application of prioritization skills.

(included in Half-Day sessions)

  • Eisenhower Matrix: This framework involves categorizing tasks into four quadrants based on their urgency and importance. Participants learn how to use this matrix to prioritize their tasks and focus their efforts on the most critical and time-sensitive tasks.
  • ABC Analysis: This framework involves categorizing tasks into three categories based on their level of importance. Participants learn how to use this analysis to prioritize tasks based on their value to the organization and their impact on achieving their goals.
  • Agile Scrum: This framework involves breaking down large projects into smaller, manageable tasks and prioritizing them based on their importance to achieving the project’s goals. Participants learn how to use this framework to manage their workload more effectively and collaborate with their team to ensure everyone is working on the most critical tasks.
