Sometimes a task is a high priority for a project, but a low priority for the department/company. For example, let’s say there’s a project called “Purchase Radio Ads from Local Station.”
And there’s a task called “Meet with KCNN, Largest Radio Station In Our State.”
This meeting is the most important thing in the project, so we might want to mark it “high.”
However, let’s say radio marketing represents only 5% of our overall adspend, and we don’t care about it that much.
How do we indicate that the task is important to the project but NOT important to the company as a whole?
My idea is to create two sets of priorities – one for company wide and another specific to the project. But not sure if that’s the best thing to do. How do you deal with this situation?
