One of the major decisions to be made in any IT project is the prioritization of requirements to be implemented. The prioritization techniques in the literature, however generally do not consider the differences in the nature of requirements on different levels of abstraction, making it hard to guide requirements refinement in IT projects based on priorities. Furthermore, most techniques are based on the subjective assessment of different stakeholders and do not calculate the actual business value of a requirement. In this paper, we therefore propose a prioritization method for IT projects that refines and prioritizes requirements in a systematic and more objective way, from an enterprise's business processes down to the system function level. Therefore, we combine business process-driven requirements engineering with prioritization issues.
