Four Quadrant Charts using Two Scorecards

This is for the Strategic Initiative Four Quadrant Chart.

The Y Axis is Value and the Value Scorecard can have many contributing factors such as Customer Value, Stakeholder Value, Market Value, Compliance Value, Shareholder value and all these make up the Total score for the Y Axis.

The X Axis is Effort and the Effort Scorecard can have many contributing factors such as Business Change Costs, IT Implementation, Licencing, Development, etc. These all add up to the Total for the X Axis.

Using these two scorecards can be used as data inputs that will result in the chart being populated based on data rather than gut feel about where an item should sit in the chart.
