Product prioritization, also referred to as feature prioritization, is the process of deciding what to do in what order and why. It also involves convincing the various stakeholders (engineers, designers, customers, management, etc.) that the order you’ve chosen to do things it the most rational based on all reasonably knowable factors. This guide is focused more on short term situations (within your backlog, within a given sprint) rather than longterm (roadmap over the next three years). We’ve broken out roadmap planning into it’s own section.

If you’re looking for specific tools to deal with feature prioritization, we suggest checking out the roadmap tools and collaboration tools section of the site.
