Many Agile teams have an ordered list of items to be worked on, where the most important items are at the top of the list, and the least important items are at the bottom of the list. It is a common practice for the items at or near the top of the list to be much better articulated (that is, have more descriptive information) than those at the bottom. Paying less attention to items at or near the bottom of the list reduces the potential for waste, because some or all of those items might never be worked on, due to shifts in priority and other changes in business context.
