Backlog Prioritization: The Art of Being a Decision Doula
Decision analysis is in every chapter of the BABOK; it’s an underlying competency and the business analyst role to help others make better decisions. This presentation provides a forum to learn from each other how an analyst can best facilitate the prioritization of a backlog. Be ready for an interactive session where we practice mock interview questions to ensure energy is focused on the most important work.
Topics covered include:
• Facilitating decisions is what we do
• Why we prioritize
• What’s a good decision?
• Defining success criteria
• Estimation methods and scales – an introduction
