With Team Expert Choice

Page 2: Strategic Project Alignment

Team Expert Choice allows you to:Team Expert Choice allows you to:

Identify and structure strategic goals of a decision.

Derive priorities for goals based on stakeholder analysis .

Make decisions, like Prioritizing a project portfolio based on hard data & expert evaluation in light of goals.

Optimize project selection for maximum benefit.

Justify project selection and funding requests.

Strategic Project Alignment StepsStrategic Project Alignment Steps

Phase I- Identify and Measure Business Goals.

Phase II- Determine Project’s Benefit.

Phase III- Determine Project’s Risk.

Phase IV- Allocate Resources to Projects.

Page 4: Strategic Project Alignment

Phase I- Goal ID & MeasurementPhase I- Goal ID & Measurement

Brainstorm for Strategic Business Goals.

Structure Goals into Decision Hierarchy.

Derive Importance of Goals Using Pairwise Comparison Process (AHP).

Analyze Weighted / Prioritized Business Goals.

Page 5: Strategic Project Alignment

Structuring, seen above, is where decision makers brainstorm and cluster decision goals and objectives.

Brainstorm for Decision Goals

Phase 1: Goal ID

Page 6: Strategic Project Alignment

The hierarchy is automatically built. It displays decision objectives that will be used for prioritization and evaluation of initiatives/projects.

Structured Strategic Goal Hierarchy

Phase 1: Structured Hierarchy

Page 7: Strategic Project Alignment

Decision Makers use keypads to compare each pair of criteria in pairs to determine their relative importance. Jennifer is saying Improve Knowledge Management is Moderately more important than Growing Revenues.

Prioritize Goals Using Paired Comparisons

Phase 1: Measuring Goals

Page 8: Strategic Project Alignment

The Priorities Graph, shows the priorities derived from the pairwise comparisons as relative measures of the importance of each objective.

Graphical Analysis of Prioritized Goals

The inconsistency ratio measures how consistent the group was in judgments concerning the relative importance of the objectives. If inconsistency is greater than .10, the judgments should be reviewed for accuracy.

Phase 1: Goal Analysis

Phase II- Prioritize Project BenefitPhase II- Prioritize Project Benefit

Develop Custom Ratings Scales for Assessing Projects.

Assess Projects Against Strategic Goals.

Synthesize Project Evaluations to Calculate Benefit.

Page 11: Strategic Project Alignment

Build Custom Ratings Scales

Decision-makers derive a numerical rating scale with verbal ratings intensities. Values are derived through pairwise comparisons or assigned using existing scales

Phase II: Develop Ratings Scale

Page 12: Strategic Project Alignment

EC2000 synthesizes the priorities of the objectives, data and ratings to determine the overall priorities of the projects/initiatives.

Project Assessment

The Total column represents the strategic value of each project

Phase II: Evaluating Projects

Page 13: Strategic Project Alignment

EC’s sensitivity graphs enable you to test the sensitivity of the decision to changes in priorities by changing the weights of your objectives to instantly see the impact on your alternatives.

By dragging the objective’s priorities back and forth in the left column, the priorities of the alternatives will change in the right column. If a decision-maker thinks an objective might be more or less important than originally indicated, the decision-maker can drag that objective's bar to the right or left to increase or decrease the objective’s priority and see the impact on project scores.

The component view of the Dynamic Sensitivity graph is shown in both graphs.

Phase II: Strategic Alignment

Perform Sensitivity Analysis

Page 14: Strategic Project Alignment

Phase III- Identify & Prioritize RiskPhase III- Identify & Prioritize Risk

Identify and Structure Risk Factors.

Create Custom Rating Scale for Assessing Risk.

Rate Projects for Likelihood of Success.

Graphically Analyze Project Risk.

Page 15: Strategic Project Alignment

Risk Model With Weighted Risk Factors

Expert Choice also used to prioritize project risks. The results of the risk analysis feeds into the optimization.

Phase III: ID Project Risk Factors

Page 16: Strategic Project Alignment

Rate Projects Against Risk Factors

Phase III: Rate Project Risks

Page 17: Strategic Project Alignment

Performance Sensitivity

The performance graph shows the weights of the risk factors as the vertical bars. The relative scores of the alternatives as the colored lines are read using the right axis.

Phase III: Graphically Analyze Project Risks

Page 18: Strategic Project Alignment

Phase IV- Allocate Resources to ProjectsPhase IV- Allocate Resources to Projects

Select the Optimal “Mix” of Projects for the Portfolio based on Benefit, Risk and Cost.

Add Constraints Such as Project Interdependencies.

Check Portfolio Against Various Budget Levels to Find the Best Level of Funding.

Page 19: Strategic Project Alignment

EC2000 benefit priorities from the Data Grid export directly into its Excel optimization tool to help organizations with investment portfolio management. Above is a simple fund or not fund model where the projects with the highest overall benefit for their costs will be fully funded. More complex budget constraints can easily be included.
