What is Moscow Rule In Scrum?

Moscoq MoSCoW rule

When working with stories from a product backlog especially during release planning, Write all the epic stories ( the main use cases ) and instead of stank ranking them numerically, apply the

  • Must Have,
  • Should Have
  • Could Have
  • Wont Have

rule to each story . i.e. ask the product manager to write a M S C or W in front of every story. Sometimes product owners find it tough to apply numbers but a grouping like this is much easier for a first pass.
