OpenMSU

Prioritization Model

The prioritization model for recommending solutions is substantially developed but still a work in progress. Rather than reinvent the wheel from scratch, the OpenMSU initiative is leveraging and adapting the model developed through the completed MSU Integration Initiative for prioritization and intake of proposed solutions. The information below summarizes the progress to date of the Recommendations sub-committee.

Proposed solutions must first demonstrate alignment with initiative objectives, summarized as increasing efficiency and improving employee job satisfaction (see About OpenMSU). Solutions that align with initiative objectives are then prioritized— there are many good ideas for improvements but they can't all be done at once.

Proposed solutions will be prioritized based on the criteria:

  • Alignment to mission and initiative objectives
  • Probability of success
  • Biggest bang for the buck
