About This Class

Because of the strict time-boxing of the sprint development cycle and the need to minimise the time to market of a viable product, it’s absolutely imperative the features and requirements that add the highest business value are developed first.

So the Clients wish list of features and the items in the Product Owners product backlog need to be prioritised. But just as  important, is the need to reach a common understanding with all stakeholders on the importance they place on the delivery of each feature and product backlog item

The MoSCoW Method of prioritisation is one of many that have been developed over the years and is used extensively in software development projects

And the definitions of the four priority categories help stakeholders fully understand the impact of setting a priority to every feature and requirement.

If your into product creation using Agile/Scrum you need to know how to prioritise every task that the development team need to complete.

So, sign up for the class and let’s go explore MoSCoW…
