Prioritizing Projects In Your Portfolio – Take Out The Emotion!

Far too many times, IT organizations struggle with finding a fair means to prioritize the projects they will invest in. These sometimes turn into near war zones where each business unit fights to get their pet projects into the mix. Company politics may divert funding to those business units with the most clout versus what may be truly best for the business.

Through this, decisions can be made based on facts and scores versus raw emotions and competing business agendas.
