How Microsoft Project Server calculate Projects priorities

Continuing the series of articles I wrote on Portfolio Analysis within Microsoft Project Server 2013, and following my previous article on How Microsoft Project Server calculate business drivers prioritization, this will (should) help you understanding How Microsoft Project Server calculate projects prioritization.
To highlight this calculation, I will reuse the same business drivers I have defined previously:
  • Expand revenue of the Bobby Brown product line
  • Increase product awareness among people between 13 and 18
  • Increase the number of members of the VIP club
  • Introduction of new premium products
  • Reduce employee turn over
  • Reduction of support call waiting time

And same set of projects:
  • Ambush Marketing Reporting System
  • Bamsolcare Service Desk Reorganization
  • Colthan Metalhead Adventure Mobile Game
  • Corporate Tax Returns Process Alignment With SOX
  • Europa Workflow Upgrade to v12
  • Kern Stinger Operating System
  • Mountain Lake Corp Laptop Deployment
  • Travelling Up Europe Marketing Campaign

Microsoft Most Valuable Professional on Project

What a great pleasure for me to be awarded Microsoft Most Valuable Professional on Project! I am really grateful for the recognition. April 1st 2015, will stay a strange April fool’s day for me. When I receive the email from the MVP programme, I did not say anything to any colleagues even to my wife until I receive another email asking me for my shirt size…
I hope to live up to these great names who made me love Microsoft Project: Vincent, Guillaume, Dale, Ben, Cindy, Ellen, Andrew, Prasanna, Gary, Paul, Sam, Bill…

Thank you guys for welcoming me on your family J
