Focus on Efforts with the
Highest Potential Upside

company

 These should be the primary efforts taking the majority of
resources in the company

success or high efforts involved

High Likelihood of Success
 & Low Efforts Involved

  working & to make consistent incremental gain in new
  areas

  upside

  All Efforts Should Have
      Strategic Value

most scrutiny for strategic value

much greater importance depending on their strategic value
