This can have substantial impact on market timing, enterprise earnings and project manager survivor rate. There are several ways to order a backlog, and sophisticated methods and tools exist to do so—for example, in release planning. But the important point we’ll make here, is that no matter what scheme for backlog ordering you choose to use, you ought to be explicit on the order in which you realize potential business value. To this end, we’ll present methods to express business value relative to cost in your backlog and methods to monitor how much potential business value you’re realizing along the way—in addition to cost expended.
