What factors could influence a product owner's prioritization decisions?
- Customer priority
- Urgency of getting feedback
- Relative implementation difficulty
- Symbiotic relationships between work items (e.g. B is easier if we do A first)
While the product owner is tasked with prioritizing the backlog, it's not done in a vacuum. Effective product owners seek input and feedback from customers, designers, and the development team to optimize everyone's workload and the product delivery.
