Project Prioritization Tool

Last Revised: May 29, 2009


Prioritizing is crucial to managing multiple projects. IT leaders must consider many components when deciding project priority, including whether projects span the organization, meet evolving business needs, and include stakeholder demands – all while operating under constrained resources. As a result, prioritizing IT projects continues to be increasingly challenging.

Use this tool to:

  • Enter and maintain all data collected from project requests in a central inventory.
  • Rank projects based on a number of important criteria and business drivers.
  • Measure enterprise resource availability against project resource requirements.
  • Consider alternative ways of accomplishing projects that do not meet resource requirements.
  • Analyze the recommended shortlist of projects by completing different iterations of the tool.

Prioritizing projects can be a complicated and time-consuming process. Use this tool to simplify the necessary stages in producing a shortlist of prioritized projects.

    We had developed a tool, but this prioritization tool provides criteria that we did not consier being a hospital we focused on the clinical and did not fully consider the business drivers.

    Once the project is complete - how can you prevent it from being prioritised yet still remain visible?
