Netiquette IQ Technical Term Of The Day - PICK chart



PICK chart
A PICK chart (Possible, Implement, Challenge and Kill chart) is a visual tool for organizing ideas. PICK charts are often used after brainstorming sessions to help a group identify which ideas have a high payoff and can be implemented easily.
A PICK chart is set up as a large grid, two squares high and two squares across. The PICK acronym comes from the labels for each quadrant of the grid:
  • Possible - ideas that are easy to implement but have a low payoff.
  • Implement - ideas that are easy to implement and a high payoff.
  • Challenge - ideas that are hard to implement and difficult to determine payoff.
  • Kill - ideas that are hard to implement and have low payoff.
PICK charts are useful for focusing discussion and achieving consensus. Once each idea from the brainstorming session has been placed on the most appropriate square, it becomes easier to identify which ideas should be acted on first.
