This talk was based on a planning prioritization technique I learned about while taking a project management course called “Agile Product Owner: Techniques”, by Angela Wick. This course can be viewed on Lynda.com. The process has been called “Buy A Feature” or “The Budget Game” prioritization.
The goal of this planning technique is to have the stakeholders of an application use money to decide what they consider valuable. The advantage of seeing what features the stakeholders see as most important is indispensable. The catch? Only enough money to pay for 40 – 70 percent of the costs of all the features and stories is distributed. This gets the participants talking, debating, doing mergers and acquisitions, and working to get their feature purchased.
