Achieving ICT project prioritisation
Conclusion: Most organisations have more ICT enabled projects and initiatives than they can possibly deliver. A significant number of CIOs report that gaining business consensus to prioritisation of projects can be an extremely difficult and often emotional process.
While availability of budget is a common qualifying criterion for ICT project progression, it is often not the biggest constraint. By applying a relatively simple project prioritisation framework to the list of projects waiting to be undertaken, CIOs can develop a program of work that is achievable and can be agreed across the organisation.
