About the project

There is often a wide gap between the priorities of projects within the development organization, the priority of the project in the view of the overall business, and the priority of the project in the eyes of the requester. A common issue is that a ‘high priority’ project for one department is not viewed as important by the business because it does not generate revenues, and so the developers also downgrade it. Everyone needs to be on the same page with priorities, and a large part of that is to ensure that business units are not evaluated on the basis of projects that the overall business considers lower priority.
