Sometimes there seems to be just too much to do, and if you are a school governor then it can be difficult to know how the demands made by your voluntary role should relate to others demands which might be made on your life and time. In this short module you will find details of a simple tool, known as ‘the priority grid’. This tool helps you to organise your priorities, and therefore helps you to use your time and energy more effectively.
