Excel Project Prioritization

My papers explain why nearly all PPM tools are incapable of correctly prioritizing projects. To accurately prioritize you need to quantify project value, and the only way to do that is to use multi-objective decision analysis (MODA).

But, MODA requires more complex mathematics and must be customized for each application. Few software vendors and consultants have the knowledge and skill required to properly deliver solutions of this kind.

My Excel Project Prioritization Software is a powerful, easy to use, portfolio planning and project prioritization tool that incorporates analytics and features previously available only in six-figure software. A breakthrough design allows the model to be fully customized via information that you can provide in a short phone conversation.

Prices are low to be attractive to any organization.

  • Do you really need expensive software? Half of all organizations practicing PPM do it using Excel alone.
  • Experts recommend starting with a tool that is simple to use. Learn PPM without having to learn complex software.
  • Accurate project prioritization is the key to deriving the greatest value from your project portfolio. Be sure to include my tool in any comparison of PPM software.


Also known as multi-attribute utility analysis (MUA).
