Step 5: Assess the impact of each project
How to Convert Your City into Smart City
Once the implementation success of individual projects has been evaluated, the next step is to identify the impact that the projects will have on the Smart City objectives. The projects with the highest impact are the ones that are most attractive for implementation.
The impact assessment is a two-step process:
1. Prioritize the Smart City objectives:
First, a city has to prioritize the identified Smart City objectives by allocating a weight to each objective depending on its relative importance for the city.
2. Assess each project and calculate its impact:
Second, key city stakeholders must assess the impact of each project on each objective. Once this has been done, cities can compute the total impact a project has on the Smart City objectives.
