This model for relative prioritising and sizing of requirements is a technique often used in an Agile/SCRUM environment, but I have found it to be invaluable in many different situations.

It is a way of quickly mapping out the relative priority and complexity or size of the items identified, so that decisions can be made about what to action. Rather than thinking about what the priority of each item should be, or estimating the work involved, the items are placed on a scale, based on how they sit in relation to other items on that scale.

The idea is that our brains are quicker at determining comparisons than worrying about calculating actual amounts.
