Mission-Based Prioritization Tool

Keith Korzec

This tool is intended to be used by an objective observer to aid in the prioritization of work to be performed based on value to the mission as opposed to monetary return on investment.


Software Engineering Institute


This is a tool to implement the mission-based prioritization of agile backlogs. It is available in two versions:

  • a no-frills version that accounts for restrictions on government computers; the results must be manually sorted.
  • an alternate version of the tool that includes a small amount of Visual Basic code that creates a tab containing the sorted prioritized list and a tab containing features grouped by the mission parameters.
