MoSCoW Method of Software Proposals

MoSCoW method

Feature creep is a real thing. It’s pretty hard to present any technology proposal
to a group of engaged engineers without large “blue sky” converstations starting.

The MoSCoW method gives you four one word classifications that will make your intentions clear.

  • MUST - we will build this now
  • SHOULD - not committed to
  • COULD - not planning on it
  • WON'T - not doing

The wiki page is so good that I’m just going to link to the MoSCoW method.
