In corporations where the focus is a very dynamic business inserted in web environments, agile methods can fully meet almost all needs. However, in some particular companies, there are multiple stakeholders, who represent different interests in prioritizing activities. There is, consequently, a heavy challenge to implement agile methodologies which deal with such conflicts in order to prioritize the features of the system. It is important to focus on higher earned value as possible and consider the technical risks exposed by the development team. These barriers often lead these companies to abandon such agile methods, incorporating an approach of a chaotic work environment. This paper proposes an agile technique for prioritizing features in environments with multiple stakeholders and reports a successful experience in its usage.
