How Scoring Works on the Prioritization table
Rename and define the weight of each opportunity.
Use a scale of 1-5 to rank each opportunity in a category. One (1) is low Benefit or low Cost. Five (5) is high Benefit or high Cost. While an item with 5's on the Benefits side and 1’s on the Cost side will be awarded 100% of the total possible points.
Update the (Lane) list for each opportunity as an optional step.
