Re-Adjustments

When organizational or market factors fluctuate, project priorities may shift due to changing realities. Organizations that have multiple projects competing for limited resources face the following key challenges:

  • Making the project inventory and project priority list vital elements of the IT management and/or organizational process, rather than static documents or reports left to become stagnant and useless.
  • Keeping the project priority list dynamic and reflective of current IT and/or organizational initiatives and activities rather than a single point-in-time assessment and evaluation.

This program consists of three key steps:

  1. Process for Re-Prioritization
  2. Revisit Project Priority List and Make Adjustments
  3. Review Adjustments with Stakeholders

When you have completed this program, you will have:

  • Identified key events or external circumstances that can trigger project re-prioritization.
  • A clear and defined process to manage and maintain project priorities, both now and in the future.
  • A re-prioritized list of projects based on new realities.
  • Templates for communicating with, and obtaining approval from, senior management and stakeholders.
