Hi Jason,

Thanks for the "Carver Matrix" videos and the .pdf very informative.

It's funny I was using a similar method for decision making, and yet I have never heard the term "Carver" or what it stood for.

Very helpful!

Thanks Again

Aloha Friends,

I created a series of videos for some of my clients and thought many of you would find this useful.

A client of mine wrote saying that he doesn't have a problem coming up with product ideas -- he has a problem deciding which idea is the one to pursue.

I use what the military calls a "CARVER Matrix" when deciding which tasks I need to focus on. In the military it is used for target determination -- but it is easily adapted to project/decision management too!

Here is a video I uploaded on Google Video (http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=-4641902026727746159) to explain how to use the Carver Matrix.

If you would like a free PDF copy of the form I use, including an in-depth explanation of the process, send an email to carver-matrix@aweber.com and the form will be sent to you by autoresponder.
