We are in the process of implementing a project portfolio management method where none has existed previously. We have done a good deal of research and developed a process that includes a scoring model. Analyzing project proposals, working with clients, and scoring them will take a significant amount of time for each project. For short term projects, the time and effort put into evaluating and scoring the project will be more than the time and effort required to execute the project.
My questions are:
- In your experience, how have you decided what projects should not be scored?
- Which projects is it not worth scoring because they are so short term (dare I say easy)?
- What do you do with those projects? How do you compare them to projects that are being scored when determine which project should be done next?
- Do you even consider these quick wins to be projects, or just tasks on a to-do list?
