One of my previous posts was related with Agile Perfomance Indicators and their use in order to understand teams and business behaviour.
From that moment, I didn’t stop thinking how could we improve one of these performance indicators. In other words the “Delivered Work Items”.
As everyone knows, when we deliver a work item we are delivering or should be delivering value. Nevertheless, I do agree this is a complex and very subjective metric to try to come up with.
After having surfed a bit the web I found an interesting article on this topic. Why not establish Business Value Points per each work item?
Roman Pichler in the book Agile Product Management with Scrum says:
“Value is a common prioritisation prioritisation factor. We certanly want to deliver the most value items first.” 
Well.. I do believe that, with this approach the Product Owners have a better way to understand each work item and their priority to be implemented by the teams.
Nevertheless, after discussing this subject and article I received the following question:
“What happens when a team starts to get consistently work items that have low points? Do they get demotivated?”
My thoughts and my answer to this question was:
A team shouldn’t just receive US with low Business Value Points. What can we do to change that?
Also, should we implement a feature that has low business value, or should we pick up features with more business value?
What are your thoughts about this subject and approach?
