It’s a great idea to include the potential Champion of a project when assessing the viability of that project. If you would like more defined criteria (and rankings) you have other options since this tool is meant to be a simple way to assess the viability of a project. If you prefer using more defined criteria for project selection, try downloading the Project Selection Tool.

Project Selection should always include the potential Champion of the project whichever tool you use.
