Prioritizing, Rating, and Analyzing

Set Realistic Target Dates

Trying to assign a target date before scope is set is a very real project development problem. Don't be surprised by “real-world” pressures to get something up by a release date that is determined before the actual scope of the project is set. Do remember that workflow is designed in the other order — prioritize ahead of risk rating — for a reason: It provides a vital check to ensure that you're not putting something out there just because it is possible, but rather because it will meet correct and crucial business needs. Ideally, scope determines schedule, but the opposite happens all the time, thrusting risk rating ahead of business priorities, or at least forcing the combining of these tasks.
