Can anyone recommend a good book or theorist that addresses prioritization a little more explicitly?

What is the definition of prioritization? Approaches / frameworks to help identify.

I can see the relevance of Effective Executive, but wonder if there is anything else out there that y'all have found useful.

Thx :)

Of course, I should have pointed you to the podcast first

Parts 1 and 2

Basic concept is that there is never enough time to get everything done.  Therefore you have to choose what to do and what not to do.  You should always choose to work on the most important things first.  The things that you are being measured on.  The things that will help your boss on what she is being measured on.  That way, the things that don't get done are the less important things that aren't going to hurt you when they don't get done.

In Getting Things Done, David Allen would also suggest that if it takes 2 minutes or less, then just do it and get it out of the way.  If there is someone in your team you can delegate it to, then delegate it and get it off your to-do list.  there is a cast for delegation too.

Hope this helps.
