The Prioritization of Projects
BACKGROUND
The directorates of Engineering, Marketing, Manufacturing, and R&D all had projects that they were working on and each directorate established its own pri-orities for the projects. The problem was that the employees were working on multiple projects and had to deal with competing priorities.
PRIORITIZATION ISSUES
Lynx Manufacturing was a low-cost producer of cables and wires.

By the turn of the century, manufacturing technologies began to grow and Lynx had to prepare for the technology revolution that was about to impact its business. Each directorate began preparing lists of projects that it would need to work on, and some of the lists contained as many as 2.00 projects. These. projects
