Microsoft EPM Portfolio Prioritization


With potentially hundreds of projects competing for the same limited budget and resources, formulating common scoring criteria is essential to effectively prioritizing and evaluating investment requests.

Using Project Server 2010, analysts can select the prioritization criteria that will drive portfolio analysis. An analyst can choose to prioritize requests based on their strategic value or to create custom fields that include other prioritization metrics—for example, net present value (NPV), ROI, Risk, and Total Cost.

After defining the New Portfolio Analysis properties, the projects is prioritized based on their impact against each strategic business drivers.

The primary purpose of the matrix is to derive a priority score for each project in the portfolio.
