Step 2: Use the slider bars on the left panel to adjust the weighting of each scoring element. As you adjust the weighting, you’ll see the adjusted score in the New Score column.

Arrows in the first column indicate whether a project moved up or down in the ranking by virtue of the new score.

Step 3: Once you have the scoring order you feel comfortable with, based on your chosen weighting, you can decide which projects, if any, you wish to update the priority for (for instance, if a project has gone up or down significantly in rank based on the new weighting of the scoring criteria).

To update the project priority, go to the PMO area Ranking page (instructions above in the “Ranking” section), update the priority, and click the Save icon.
