Prioritization: What's First on Your List to Santa?

We never have enough time to do everything we want to do on projects, and rarely have enough money. If we’re doing our job well, we will live within these constraints to deliver the best value we can to our stakeholders.

This presentation looks at existing practices on projects, identifies the problems with these practices and explores the principles behind effective prioritization. We’ll then look at a variety of different techniques to understand the distinctions between them, where they are best applied, and recognize that the models are tailorable for our specific situation. Filled with examples from real-world projects, you will learn valuable tools and recognize that prioritization is best seen as an ongoing management tool rather than a point exercise on your projects.
