Use Case Scenario
• Annual capital budget process
• IT no longer in the business of prioritizing – accountability
at the Steering Committee Level
• CIO goal (tied to incentive comp) – no project
receives capital funding unless it has gone through Steering
Committee Prioritization Process
• Steering Committees, staffed by business unit owners,
negotiate priorities amongst themselves considering:
–
–
–
–
–
–
Strategic alignment
Employee and patient impact
Organizational impact
Financial impact
Risk factors
Alignment with single vendor strategy

Keys to Success
• Projects requiring only operational dollars
still need to go through the IT governance process
• Transparency is important – end users are
looking for process and communication
• Don’t let perfect get in the way of the good,
(e.g., forget about weighting )
– we used:
•
•
•
•
Broken or bleeding
Strategic importance – can’t wait
Strategic importance – can wait
Can be deferred
• Figure out whether Executive IT Governance Group wants
to be part of final decision-making process or just approver
