Business Value First

In ExtremeProgramming , the fundamental responsibility of Business in delivering stories to Development is to maximize business value. Recall that in the PlanningGame, stories are prioritized using business value, and rated for risk as well. High-risk stories that threaten overall project success are moved forward, even over stories of higher business value but low risk of complete failure. This risk-reduction rule is called WorstThingsFirst.
