Easy work prioritization

There's more to prioritization than just assigning low, medium or high priority to each work item. A more meaningful strategy would be to determine what is going to be delivered first, second, third, etc.

The value of a feature can be expressed in terms of its benefit-cost ratio—the amount of benefit it brings for the amount of money spent to develop it. Armed with the knowledge of your features' benefits and relative costs, you can quickly and methodically prioritize them to deliver the maximum benefit for the least cost.
