Introducing Next Decision for Jira: A Solution for Effective Backlog Prioritization

Jira is a powerful tool for managing projects and tracking progress, but prioritizing the backlog can often be challenging. With a growing number of tasks and competing priorities, getting everyone on the same page can take significant time and effort. We introduced Next Decision for Jira to help exactly with that!

Next Decision introduces an effective system that supports group decision-making by simplifying the prioritization process to only “this or that” decisions between pairs of issues.

Next Decision processes the votes and creates a sorted list of all the Jira Issues, making it easy to see which issues are most important to the team. Furthermore, Next Decision for Jira can update your backlog priorities with a click of a button.

By using Next Decision, teams can democratize prioritizing the Jira backlog. Instead of relying on a single person, a small group, or office politics to make decisions, the whole product/delivery/stakeholders team can influence how the backlog is ordered. Next Decision helps to ensure everyone’s buy-in to the team’s priorities, even if individual team members have diverging preferences. It also ensures that the team is working on the tasks that will have the most significant impact on the project/product.

If you’re looking for a way to democratize your Jira backlog prioritization and ensure that your team is working on the most important tasks, give Next Decision for Jira a try. It’s easy to use and will result in better decisions.
