1. Start with value in mind.
Successful projects start with the value in mind. This is where we fail often. We use criticality as a means of defining value, when it really doesn’t do that at all.
If we do criticality properly, and that is doubtful often, then it will define our most important assets – not our greatest value.
Focus on the Value Quadrant. Most companies look for revenue first, then costs, then risk and then knowledge. Make sure to tie it to your own company’s views and what your management thinks.
