Help, I've implemented a prioritisation system!

Save for later


Part5 of a farce in 6 parts. Why not help 'David' by posting your answers below?

Dear all,

After being almost laughed out of the board meeting yesterday, Ive just gone and set up a really smart method so we can now prioritise all of our projects. We did it for really good reasons. We never really knew what was most important for us, so we would always just end up working on the things we most liked doing.

Unfortunately, all that seems to have happened is that every project now has a carefully calculated score, but as we dont have a reasonable resource allocation picture, we cant actually do anything with it but at least we can explain to our CEO what is most important and why.

Im getting all kinds of stick for doing what I thought was the right thing. Help - Where did I go wrong?

Yours Etc

Part 1 - Help, Ive just implemented a PMO!

Part 3 - Help, Ive just trained everyone!
