The main idea behind the Prioritization Matrix is to compare and select the best alternative from a set of options. A basic matrix consists of a set of criteria options and the alternatives under consideration. Start by placing the criteria in the left hand column and the alternatives in the top row. Fill the matrix by ranking the alternatives against each criteria from best to worst. Finally, look at the bottom of the table to make the best decision for your situation.
