Title: Prioritizing features with purpose

As a company or project that has two bottom lines, social and financial - it's difficult to know what guides product development. It's especially difficult to bring a team together to perfectly execute such a vision. Once there is a clear direction for the product - what are the next steps? I'll be focusing on the decision making process that follows, the workflow you should aim for and some of the possible pitfalls to be aware of.
