The Braathe Management Matrix

I used Stephen Covey’s 4 Quadrant Time Management system for several years and adapted what I learned into what I call the Braathe Management Matrix.

The Matrix has 4 Areas

Delegate – an area to assign tasks, those responsible and due dates

Do or Document – an area where you list things you will do or document so others can do them

Date – one or two things a day for the next few days that you commit to doing

Braathe Management Matrix

Dismiss – a short list of things you will eliminate

For more insight on how I use this, set up a time to speak with me at
