Every organization should have a routine project prioritization practice. However, unforeseen events often alter priorities driving the need for unscheduled project reprioritization. This research note discusses the following:
- Identifying events that trigger drastic changes to the organization's capability to complete projects as planned.
- Analyzing the impact of events on the organization's current project priority list.
- Determining when it is appropriate to revisit the original project priority list and make adjustments.
Due to unexpected internal and market events, priorities are always changing. Embrace this change as an opportunity to reevaluate project priorities and optimize the use of organizational capacity through reprioritization.
