Specifically tailored for you – business representatives interested in Project Management.

In the open lecture a top expert in Project Management will present a simple prioritization procedure that can be applied to the ranking of requirements at the release as well as the project level.

MoSCoW rule = ‘must’ +’should’+ ‘could’ + ’would’.

Applied to release planning this will help to decide when and with what features a working version of a software product will be made available to its customers. The procedure does not only capture customer preferences, but by constraining the number of features in the “must have” set as a function of the uncertainty of the underlying estimates, is able to offer project sponsors a high degree of reassurance in regards to the delivered of an agreed level of software functionality by the end of the time box.
