I'm excited to announce the public launch of our new Jira app that helps with project planning and prioritization 👉 Foxly - Backlog Priority Scoring.
From my own experience, backlog prioritization and grooming can be a real can of worms. Dealing with different stakeholders, ensuring everyone's opinion is heard, bringing in customer feedback, figuring out how to introduce your customer data to make more data-driven decisions and many many more.
These frameworks help you bring the system into your prioritization and help you look at the issue from different angles.
The idea is simple. You have a few metrics that you fill and these are then used to calculate the priority score.
Let me give you a quick example of the ICE method.
ICE stands for Impact, Confidence and Effort. You are going to be asking:
Once you answer all these questions the priority score is calculated:
ICE SCORE = Impact*Conficence*Effort
The priority score than helps you make better-informed decisions. But don't forget that every team and project is different. You can always go and use one of these frameworks as a base and adapt it to your own needs.
Because spreadsheets get lost and what is not in Jira doesn't count for many of us 😁 we created the Jira prioritization plugin that:
gives you the freedom to choose the prioritization framework you want (ICE, RICE, WSJF, Value vs Effort)
allows you to customize and create a new prioritization template with your own metrics and scoring formula
has an interactive priority table where you can assign values for the metrics and score is calculated real-time
creates Priority Matrix where you can faster spot quick wins
has plenty of filters to help you get the view you need
shows score in issue detail and you can also adjust metrics from there
You can see Foxly is making the prioritization process in Jira more systematic but also fast.
Go and give it a try 👉 it’s available now on Atlassian marketplace for Jira Cloud.
And if you have any feedback let us know! As I said we just launched and we’re ready to hear what you think and improve.
PS. Be careful it’s a bit addictive 🤓
