I’ve been working through a few updates on a prioritization framework for use in a feature and sprint planning session. The very nature of the sessions are to align on what a team is going to be working on with ensuring it’s appropriated towards the highest priority items. After a few recent chats with other PM’s, there was a needed sense of balance between business needs, product fit, and cost.
Here’s the latest update that aims to provide that sense of balance:
- ROI – Return on investment of fitting product theme fit, churn
potential, and roadmap fit relayed to a weighted average against t-shirt
- Cost – These are the t-shirt sizes that engineering generally comes up with to assess viability of a themed story or issue.
- Legend – It’s an updated map or legend that provides PM’s and Engineers the ability to map back specific priorities to the ROI number.
