The Power of a Matrix

A matrix or table is the simplest and most powerful tool that is rarely being used by people.

There are some famous one as Eisenhower Matrix for planning and decision-making.

You can also use it as a simple to-do list with priorities in a separate column.

Or as a decision matrix with tools to pick and criteria.

Or you can break down a list of responsibilities over a database tables and who is responsible for which migration.

You can also create a simple template for a daily review. Or a post-mortem. Or any template.

Basically, if you need a structure (which usually you do), starting with a matrix is a safe bet. Do not jump to a mind map or other structures right away. Start with a matrix, until it is not enough.
