Project Prioritisation

Portfolio

Successfully rank, characterise & manage projects.

Many companies suffer from the same problems – too many projects consuming too few resources. Nobody has the heart to kill any projects and there is little prioritization of one project over another. Often projects that could potentially generate revenue for the company are queued up behind projects with little chance of success.

In a scenario where too many projects pass the selection hurdle you end up in a situation where your company’s resources are stretched too thin and something has to suffer – typically quality or timeliness to market.

Leadership teams cannot make go-no-go decisions without the right level of detail – projects need to be ranked and characterised based on their strategic fit to the company, technical feasibility, market attractiveness, etc. This activity cannot take place without the right level of research.
