Project selection criteria

What project selection is …

Project selection is the act of choosing a project from among competing proposals. Project selection criteria are standards and measurements an organisation uses to select and prioritize projects. The organisation’s strategic goals provide a source for at least one dimension of selection criteria.


Other selection criteria may be qualitative or quantitative. Qualitative criteria deal with the project’s suitability with the Organisation’s capabilities, whole quantitative criteria may specify financial targets that the project must meet .


As a professional project manager, you will not be responsible for selecting the projects that your organisation will pursue, but you need to understand the methodologies that decision makers use when choosing the projects to pursue , prioritize and when.


Typical example…

A financial services organisation considering a project proposal to integrate their customer and financial databases may develop the following project selection criteria:


  • Links to the Organisation’s strategic goals of obtaining a technological advantage over the competition
  • Qualitative criteria- feasible to produce using only internal resources.
  • Quantitative criteria: meet or exceed the defined internal goal of increasing new sales by 10percent.
