Value-Based Prioritization is a core principle of the SCRUM framework, a popular methodology for agile software development.

The process of prioritization involves determining what must be done now, and what can wait until a later date within in the project. Within the SCRUM framework, three factors influence prioritization:

  1. Value
  2. Risk or uncertainty
  3. Dependencies
By evaluating each of these factors, SCRUM teams prioritize user stories to deliver maximum value to the customer in the least amount of time.

"Life is but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard of no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."

- William Shakespeare
