How the Approach Works - Selection Phase
Senior management is presented with decision choices that clearly explain the need, benefit, risks, and costs of each proposal. The choices and results of each decision are known with reasonable assurance. Project approval and budget decisions are made almost concurrently.
Ultimately, the number and types of IT projects / activities are governed by the amount of money available to pay for them. If there is not enough money to do everything, funding is denied based upon an objective assessment of priorities and needs.
