MoSCoW Analysis: a project requirements prioritisation technique

"MoSCoW analysis divides requirements into four categories: Must, Should, Could, and Won't. It is most applicable for software development or timeboxed delivery efforts, as it focuses on determining which requirements can be implemented given specified time or resource constraints. Category descriptions are as follows:

Must: Describes a requirement that must be satisfied in the final solution for the solution to be considered a success.

Should: Represents a high–priority item that should be included in the solution if it is possible. This is often a critical requirement but one which can be satisfied in other ways if strictly necessary.

Could: Describes a requirement which is considered desirable but not necessary. This will be included if time and resources permit.

Won't: Represents a requirement that stakeholders have agreed will not be implemented in a given release, but may be considered for the future."

Prioritisation technique for defining project deliverables

"For the most part, I generally advocate a three level rating system for software requirements: mandatory, desirable, and optional. The mandatory requirements cannot be sacrificed, desirable requirements are important but could be sacrificed if necessary to meet schedule or budgetary concerns. Optional requirements are ones which may not be developed, simply due to the fact that they have been rated as being 'nice to have'."

Time Management in the Age of Social Media

"The most obvious issue about social media: Is this a useful way to spend your time, or is it a sinkhole of attractive distraction? It could very easily be one of those one minute, and the other the next! It all depends on why you're doing it, and this must be evaluated moment to moment. It's an important distinction to make for yourself, because focus is probably your greatest asset that you can control. You must be judicious about where you place it and what you let grab it, thus reducing your effectiveness.
The challenge is that each of those social media involvements can represent another virtual in box [inbox], with an implicit assumption that you should think about and deal with what lands there. If 'processing' those additional streams of input is simply a matter of scanning to see what's of interest to you, that may not take much time; and you can simply drop in and out on a whim. That's no different than channel surfing, other than the added seductiveness of interactive rabbit trails to pursue."
(David Allen, 10 March 2009, Business Week)
