Business Triage

Triage is a French term, meaning “to break into three pieces.”  The term dates back to the battlefield, and now is used in emergency medicine.  It is a way to manage overwhelming and time-sensitive issues to make quick evaluations as to the right resources at the right time.  Modern medicine uses 3, 4, and even 5 levels of triage, but we’ll follow a 3-level approach and relate it to an organization here; as you read through this,...
