Problem Prioritisation

Which problem to solve first?

Problem prioritisation is one of the most important responsibilities of a product owner. And therefore, the product owner needs to have full control over it. It is a constant balancing between business needs, customer expectations and the team’s ability to deliver.

Problem categorisation into themes
  1. The best solution can be chosen instead of fixating on one solution.
  2. The focus is primarily on solving the user’s problems, instead of delivering just another feature.
  3. You will never forget the “why” for any problem. Why are you solving it? Who are you solving it for? Why should it be prioritised?
  1. Important and urgent
