Tool: Prioritize & Triage Action
This is one of 15 civic engagement tools to Shift the Country.
Quick Overview: Prioritize & Triage Action
Effective prioritization and coordination to move resources to areas with the greatest vulnerabilities or critical needs across institutions, structures, systems, sectors, coalitions, and organizations can help hold civil society together. This tool helps prioritize civic engagement activity/action as we navigate extended and evolving chaos/disruptions/crises. People, groups, and coalitions can triage or prioritize civic action for helping people help each other, for holding together vulnerable institutions, and for making transformation as multiple crises evolve – as there are economic shifts, as budgets change at every level, as laws are passed, as codes and mandates change, through system interruptions and cascading effects, and through human suffering and loss. This tool helps with system level thinking for action prioritization through cause, effect, interdependencies; and for alignment with shared objectives, goals, and strategy.
