and Impact Analysis
Difficulty and Impact Analysis is used to determine
whether it is feasible to make the improvements.
is a simple but useful tool.
A matrix is used (see example below).
When you have a range of improvements to make it helps
to assess the difficulty and ease at which these
improvements can be achieved.
You plot all the improvements on the matrix by
positioning them according to whether there impact on
the business (or area under review) would be low or high
and whether the level of difficulty to implement the
improvements would be high or low.
The results will provide you with a list of improvements
that can fall into one of the following 4 categories:
Improvement would have high impact and low difficulty to
Improvement would have high impact and high difficulty
Improvement would have Low impact and low difficulty to
Improvement would have Low impact and high difficulty to
would generally deal with the high impact and low
difficulty improvements first. However, because of
commercial reasons, you may choose to do improvements
that fall into one of the other categories.
