MoSCoW: Prioritization Method
MoSCoW is a prioritization technique that has been created at Oracle, and which is quite common in product management.
MoSCoW is a mnemonic that stands for:
- M: Must have
- S: Should have
- C: Could have
- W: Will not have (this time)
This method especially helps to have interesting cross-functional discussions about why we should address (or not) a specific problem.
It has nothing to do with the city of Moscow or with this Genghis Khan's song. 😅
