Let's suppose we want to list a manager's responsibilities. One of them is to prioritize tasks. This can be written in two ways:

Responsibilities of a manager:

  • task prioritizing
  • task prioritization

Is there any difference besides stylistic one? Which one is more appropriate?

Additional question. Should "task" be in plural form?

  • tasks prioritizing
  • tasks prioritization

It is a stylistic difference, and "prioritization" has a more formal sound, appropriate to a business document.

If you use "task prioritization", the word "task" must be singular. Another formal way to say it is "prioritization of tasks", where it must be plural.
