Prioritising the contents of your feature backlog is a vital part of determining your product roadmap. Tom and infrequent co-host Russ talk us through how to go about backlog weighting in order to work out what you should be building next. They cover:
- Weighting by perceived value - Chatting to your users, stakeholders and frontline customer service team about what people are lacking, longing for or frustrated by.
- Weighting by analytics - Using Google Analytics etc to provide the least subjective picture of what's needed.
- Weighting by cost/resource - Working out the effort needed by teams to get the feature completed.
- The tension between prioritising fixing bugs and building new things.
We also find out why sorting tasks alphabetically isn't a sensible framework!
