In this episode we’re talking about priority. You’ve all heard it, When everything is a priority, nothing is. Not sure who said it, but it’s natural truism. When we talk about priority, we’re usually talking about which project, epic, or story is most important given current circumstances. You need to be able to figure out what’s most important if you have multiple competing projects, needs, tasks, or ways to apply your resources.
Given the right context, could you figure out the priority of a list of projects? Would having input in the decision and delivery process improve your ability to deliver? Would it improve your commitment to delivery? Would you feel more empowered?
