Defect Prioritization With the Risk Priority Number
May 2015 • Podcast
In this podcast, Will Hayes and Julie Cohen discuss a generalized technique that could be used with any type of system to assist the program office in addressing and resolving the conflicting views and creating a better value system for defining releases.
“A defect that exists on my path is not really a high priority for you, but it is everything to me because it blocks my ability to use the system.”
