At the highest levels of an organization, business strategy is developed to set the goals, objectives and initiatives of the company. The end result is a framework for choosing the work that gets done and the desired order of delivery. For many organizations, a scoring model calculates how well an initiative aligns with the defined business strategies. The scoring analysis is usually performed though a series of qualitative questions that require scaled answers across a predefined range (1-5; 1-10; etc.). An aggregate score is then used to compare projects and rank them. This process along with some adjustments for risk and financial contribution, ultimately determines project priorities.

Project rank drives prioritization, which establishes relative importance of a project, ultimately affecting resource allocations and feasibility.
