The MoSCoW prioritization tool is meant to provide a diplomatic and quasi-quantitative way to get your stakeholders on-side with what’s within scope, what’s getting tackled first, what’s out of scope, and why.

Beyond prioritizing what your solution or project Must, Should, Could, and Won’t have, you’ll also need to stack-rank your backlog items based on real world project constraints like platform limitations, technological complexity, business feasibility, and level of effort.
