ICANN Planning Prioritization Framework Project

ICANN's planning department is leading the creation of a Planning Prioritization Framework to:

  1. Help the ICANN ecosystem prioritize its work within the planning cycle in a manner that is transparent, inclusive, and efficient

The Prioritization Framework needs to:

  1. Be broadly adopted by the community, Board, and org as the basis for decision-making on how to prioritize work in scope of the project
  2. Enhance effective decision-making without hampering workflow and day-to-day operations
  3. Be implemented in the annual planning cycle subject to Public Comment

The planning department is responsible for facilitating prioritization at an organizational level in order to include the prioritized projects into the annual Operating and Financial plans.
