See full text

A system for selecting a concept related to an enterprise development project is provided. The system includes a database, an authoring component, a review component, a scoring component, and an evaluation component. The database stores information about a concept and the authoring component allows a user to provide the information about the concept. The review component allows a reviewer to review the concept. The scoring component is operable for individuals to score the concept. The concept may also be designated with a priority. The evaluation component is operable for one or more evaluators to consider and designate the concept for further consideration. The concept is identified as associated with the strategic enterprise initiative that the concept supports. The system also includes graphical user interfaces that allow the concepts to be evaluated and viewed based on both the priority and score of the concepts.
