Enterprise-grade solution for automating Weighted Shortest Job First (WSJF) calculation and issue sorting

Automatic WSJF calculation

The WSJF plugin automatically re-calculates the WSJF value on changes in the input terms - Business Value, Time Criticality, Risk Reduction / Opportunity Enablement, or Job Size.

Easy sorting of issues by WSJF

Expedites backlog prioritization by automating the sorting of issues by WSJF. Saves users from having to sort issues using drag-and-drop manually.

Simple configuration

Stories and other issues can be configured to inherit the WSJF value from their parent epic. Useful in cases when standalone epics as well as individually delivered, stories carry cost-of-delay.

More details

Weighted Shortest Job First (WSJF) is a prioritization algorithm for sequencing work that has been widely embraced by the lean community. The model is a cornerstone of SAFe and is applied by organizations of all sizes. WSJF is based on the concept of Cost of Delay, which product development guru Don Reinertsen argues is the "one thing" product developers need to quantify.

Automated WSJF calculation:

  • WSJF value updated immediately upon changes in input terms
  • Stories inherit WSJF from epics if configured
  • Use any custom field for WSJF inputs
  • No scripting or coding required

Automated backlog prioritization:

  • Fast and easy sorting of issues by WSJF
  • No loss in drag-and-drop functionality
  • Easy access to sorting functionality directly from scrum or Kanban board


  • Developed by agile consultants
  • Used by MNCs
  • GDPR compliant
