Increasingly, most organisations are faced with reduced resources and the need to do more with less.  Given that you have limited budget or resource to invest in making changes to your organisation's capabilities, where should you invest or prioritise that will yield the results required in order to achieve your strategic intent?

When you have created a Capability Map, and you have linked the capabilities to your Objectives, the next step is to decide which of these Capabilities have a high, medium or low priority.  The priority rating for each Capability will help you further understand which capabilities are the most important. 

Taking the time to collaborate with your colleagues in deciding the priority rating is an important step for socialising and gaining consensus on what is important to the organisation and gain buy-in.

Tips: Setup a collaborative workshop with your colleagues to make prioritisation decisions.  Project your Jibility Capability Map onto a large screen and make edits in real time.

Assessing Priority Rating in Jibility

The Assess Priority feature of the Capabilities step allows you to drag and drop a Priority Rating tag to a capability on your map.  This will tag your capability with a star labelled as either a High, Medium or Low.  A High priority rating is more important than a Low priority rating.

At this stage, the goal is to determine the priority rating of each capability relative to each other.  Hence, the labels are just a simple High, Medium and Low.  

Note, the focus is to decide the priority rating of each capability relative to each other from a High, Medium and Low perspective.  Don't get distracted with discussions on exactly what is the investment value or amount.

Tips: Set a constraint, in order to induce debate and focused decision making, such as "If we have only 3 Highs, 7 Mediums and 11 Lows to allocate, then which Capabilities should we prioritise?"   On the lower right corner of the Priority Rating object, there is a count that shows how many capabilities are already tagged with that Priority Rating.

Finding where the Priority Rate has been allocated

Hover your mouse over the Priority Rating link counter and that corresponding rating label is highlighted on the tagged capability.
