Hi Peter, the first question that I would like to ask is whether you
have some type of "governance" structure in place. I am relatively new
in my role at UMDNJ and we are in the beginning stages of formalizing
the process. However, in my previous position within a university
environment, this approach worked extremely well. By taking this
approach, you are placing some of the burden for prioritization back
onto the user community. Although this could lead to some disadvantages,
I think the advantages far outweigh any downside.
If you want to speak about this approach in more detail, please feel
free to contact me.

I was wondering if anyone of you had a formal (as in agreed to and
process or framework to [help] prioritize projects for work, especially
advance of a new fiscal year.
This has been a thorny issue over the years, justifying which projects
forward and which don't. Some of it is quite straightforward
changes), some are tradeoffs and some (in the case of new technology)
[somewhat] leaps of faith.
The tradeoffs, especially between departments are where I am most
seeing other approaches.
Please forward these to me at [
