Decide whether to work on each gap

To decide whether each gap is important enough to spend the estimated resources necessary to close it


Edited list of performance gaps

 Form — Performance Improvement Specification

Depending on your project, the list of gaps may be quite long. It is important to pause and decide as a group whether each gap is worth the effort that will be required to close it. Consider whether the gap is wide or narrow. Take into account whether the gap seriously affects the potential of the organization to reach its goals. Contemplate how the gap affects client outcomes. Finally, weigh the amount of effort necessary to close the gap. Some gaps may not deserve further attention. Efforts to close some gaps may need to be postponed while you work on more serious or urgent gaps.
