Project Scorecard

This scorecard is a decision support tool to be used in conjunction with Project Level Indicators and management experience as an aid in assessing a project's risk and complexity level. Once the project risk and complexity level is determined, the Process, Methodology, and Documentation Guidelines will suggest the rigor and detail appropriate for that project risk/complexity level. This scorecard should be used as a guideline and not to render a decision on whether or not to move forward with a project. In addition, any project can be managed at a risk level higher than what it scores here, if desired.

The scorecard tool allows for adjustments to the project total score and thus the recommended rigor and detail of project management according to the project decision authorities risk tolerance and experience.
