Definition of Order

Refers to the order of a Backlog; the order that the appropriate Product Owner wants the Items worked on.


During the Backlog Refinement meeting, the Product Owner ordered the work from highest to lowest priority.

The Order doesn't have to be based on Business Value, which is the typical way of assigning priority. The Order could be based on dependencies, who is available, or any other thing the Product Owner thinks is important.
