Hi everyone,
We are hoping to learn from other schools around their project onboarding and prioritization processes. I'm linking the two processes because it seems like you can't really prioritize projects without sufficient data upon which to make decisions (which is what we're really after).
Do any of you have a documented process that works well for you that we could look at?
Thanks,
-p

Paul,

We're just working this out now too at uchicago. I'll be happy to share what we did, how it fared, what we learned with itana by and by. Technical architectural review to gather data and inform design will be a part of the process for many, though probably not all, projects.

Paul,

Check out the archives of the Project Constituent Educause Group.  This is a very active group and there has been lots of discussion on project portfolio management.  There is also a paper published by Georgia Tech at the Educause website on how they have prioritized their projects.  

Many universities have their governance procedures published on their own websites.  Princeton comes to mind.  These are great sites for project templates and processes.  You don't need to start from scratch.

CWRU's governance processes have been in place for two years and we have received lots of positive feedback.

Reinforcing Colleen's note, Carnegie Mellon has a relatively mature project initiation process.  We are less successful at prioritization, but do we do focus in making sure we have the right level of detail for decision-making (including technical architecture consultation) to intelligently review requests.
