Weighted shortest job first (WSJF).

Method for maximizing benefit of a project, especially in relation to other projects. Above all else is the importance of measuring the Cost of Delay (CoD). Prioritization is continuously updated to always be contextually accurate. Each project receives a WSJF score according to this equation: wsjf = CoD / Job duration or size. Job duration is the delay in reducing the cost. This model can support decentralized decisions and help with tech debt.rS6
