Everyone (we know) is challenged to do more with less, faster. Even in this agile world with a “fail fast, learn fast” mentality, there needs to be a lean structure to progress toward agreed outcomes. And left unaddressed, every request, initiative, or investment is priority 1, mission critical. As result, there is no predictabilty to succeeding against the objectives at hand. Establishing prioriization in planning and portfolio execution helps get stakeholders aligned and supportive of the greater strategic goals.
