Use Your Data to Choose Your Path Forward

Use Your Data to Choose Your Path Forward

Your business creates a lot of data and smart businesses can use that data, through business intelligence and data analytics platforms to help them prioritize tasks and streamline their operations to help them be the most effective business they can be. This week, we thought we would go through some of the things any business that seeks to use its data productively has to do. 

Define Your Goals and Objectives

Start by clearly defining your goals and objectives. What are you trying to achieve? Understanding your overarching objectives will help you prioritize tasks that align with these goals.

Collect Relevant Data

Gather all relevant data that can inform your task prioritization. This data can come from various sources such as project management tools, spreadsheets, customer feedback, performance metrics, and surveys.

Organize and Clean Data

Ensure that the data you've collected is clean and well-organized. Remove any duplicates, errors, or irrelevant information. This step is crucial for accurate analysis.

Identify Key Metrics and Criteria

Determine the key metrics and criteria that will be used to evaluate and prioritize tasks. These metrics should be directly related to your goals and objectives. Common criteria include urgency, importance, impact, and effort required.

Data Analysis

Perform analysis of the data to assign numerical values to each task based on the chosen criteria. For example, you can assign scores to tasks based on their urgency and impact. This can involve using mathematical models, spreadsheets, or data analysis software.

Weighted Scoring

If some criteria are more important than others, assign weights to them to reflect their relative importance. Multiply the scores for each criterion by their respective weights to calculate a weighted score for each task.

Visualize Data

Create visual representations of the data to gain a better understanding of task prioritization. Charts, graphs, and dashboards can help you visualize the relationships between tasks and criteria.

Consider Resource Constraints

Take into account the availability of resources, including time, budget, and personnel. Prioritize tasks that can be realistically accomplished with the available resources.

Review and Adjust

Periodically review and adjust your task prioritization as new data becomes available or circumstances change. Priorities may need to be updated to reflect evolving conditions.

Communication and Collaboration

Share the prioritized task list with relevant stakeholders and workers. Collaboration and input from others can help ensure that priorities are well-informed and accepted.


Begin working on the prioritized tasks and continuously monitor progress. Adjust priorities as needed based on real-time data and feedback.
