Prioritizing the Product Backlog

A 59 Seconds Agile Article

This article provides an ‘Introduction to Prioritizing the Product Backlog’ and looks to discuss what the Product Backlog is. It provides an overview of who is involved in the process of Prioritizing the Product Backlog.

Prioritizing the Product Backlog: Tasks

Let’s consider what we’ve discovered. Adapting the product backlog and the process of prioritizing the tasks within it, allows your team to develop their product in the most efficient way possible.

Carefully considering the risk, reward, need, and dependencies inherent in each feature will allow you to gain a clear picture of what needs to be built first and what can be saved for later. Instead of approaching your project randomly, the product owner helps create an intentional, planned approach to the product development. This maximizes the potential for value gained from the product and helps your team to feel confident and competent in their work.

By adapting the product backlog and its prioritization, you’re setting your team up to create a successful product. This measure of planning will help your company to create products faster and with less waste. Starting your project with a focus on what will bring the product the most value, promotes overall success.

In order to do well in your project, you have to set yourself up right from the beginning. Prioritizing the most valuable, integral, and risky features will help you develop a successful product. Your current traditional framework of development doesn’t have any organization to the order in which the features are developed. This leads to less value and more wasted time and cost later in the process.

By prioritizing the tasks in your backlog, you’ll be able to ensure the most value possible in your product.
