Business Value Estimation

Most scrum teams create effort estimates, often using story points, for their user stories. Does your team also have an estimate for the business value of each story? Business value estimates help teams deliver more value, sooner, and they lead to a more rational approach to ordering the items in the backlog. All of this implies that someone has to figure out the business value of each item in the backlog. If that someone is you, we can help.

This workshop explores the art and science of business value. Participants will gain an understanding of the essence of business value, and why it is more complex than revenue or profit. We will then learn two surprisingly simple techniques to estimate and quantify business value. One technique works best with internal stakeholders, who have common skin in the game despite their differences. The other technique works with external stakeholders, who often have no interests in common.

Come discover the value of business value!
