Step 3: Prioritize contents within a scenario
You organization relies on a prioritized contents list to allocate limited budget and resources. The most important content is on the top of the list. Less important contents are ranked lower. Prioritizing the contents within a scenario may include:
Moving contents in or out of the scenario.
- Assigning ranks to moved-in contents.
What to consider before prioritizing
|What to consider||Description|
|The strategic theme or business objective each content aims at||
See the Strategic planning topic in the Portfolio Management guide.
|The financial metrics, such as projected cost, projected benefit, and NPV of each content||
Such financial data provide insight on demand versus capacity, and whether a content is worth investing.
What-if Analysis provides quick access to the financial metrics in the Contents tab of a scenario. To display the financial metrics you concern about in the Contents tab:
|Dependencies between contents||
If a content is to be invested, its predecessor content is supposed to be invested too.
Move a content in or out of a scenario
If you do not plan to start or continue a content, you move the content out of the scenario. The budget and resources supply would not be allocated to it. What-if analysis automatically moves out contents that are cancelled or completed.
To move a content out of a scenario:
In any tab of the scenario details page, click the Move out icon (the blue check mark) in the first column of the content line.
Moved-out contents are listed in the lower part of the table.
- Click Save.
To move a content back into a scenario:
In any tab of the scenario details page, lower part of the table, click the Move in icon (the gray check mark).
Moved-in contents are listed in the upper part of the table.
- Click Save.
Assign priorities to moved-in contents
Contents in the scenario details page are by default listed in the alphabetical order of content names. To adjust the rank of a moved-in content:
In any tab of the scenario details page, click the Rank column to give the contents default rankings.
If you then move a content back into the scenario, the content is assigned the lowest rank.
- Click and drag the content to the desired location in the list. Its rank is updated.
