Project Prioritisation – Why it Fails and What to Do
Project prioritisation is a critical element of ensuring that limited resources are applied to the most appropriate initiatives, and result in the biggest bang for the buck. In a constrained financial environment this is even more critical, and will reveal inappropriate models, failures in governance, and decision making and the potential for missed opportunities or wasted resources. Identifying an accepted model is only one step and understanding the challenges in applying a prioritisation approach effectively will result in a far more productive outcome.
