Selecting the right project is critical for an organisation's success because resources are limited. From an economics perspective, the loss in opportunity for an organisation in doing the wrong project is expensive. This investment can be used for doing the right project for achieving competitive advantage and implementing business strategies. As a result, there are many frameworks with techniques and tools available in the literature for assisting organisations in project selection and prioritisation. All techniques or tools have their own advantages and disadvantages and these frameworks do not fit “one for all”. The framework can be business specific; therefore it is necessary to understand what the targeted industry considers as the “best practice”.
