Model to prioritize - Strictly according to return on investment
I'll start by saying I'm a weird guy.
A long time ago I realized that people mean different things when they say 'priority'. If you only mean the 'value' of a certain task, then that's not a good way to prioritize, IMHO.
I've changed my model to prioritize strictly according to return on investment. I.e., how much value I or the company receives for unit of work.
In my professional project management and in my company, here's the algorithm that I pretty much use for every sort of task prioritization:
(1) I put together a list of items
(2) I put a relative cost (RC or C) associated with each item-- for a task list this tends just to be the hours you predict you'll spend.
(3) I hide those costs and then add some number that represents the relative business value (RBV or BV) of each item. (More on this in a second)
(4) I unhide things and then put another column that just calculates RBV/RC which indicates the return on investment (ROI) for each task.
(5) I then sort it all by ROI and work my way down the list in ROI priority order, always working on the tasks that offer the most ROI, I adjust values and costs (and re-sort) as my needs change, work completes, and as my understanding of each task changes.
The units used to value each assigned task is not really important. It's only important that tasks have a value that makes sense relative to each other.

Relative Effects of Forward and Backward Planning on Goal PursuitPsychological Science - Jooyoung Park, Fang-Chi Lu, William M. Hedgcock, 2017
Compared with forward planning, backward planning not only led to greater motivation, higher goal expectancy, and less time pressure but also resulted in better goal-relevant performance. We further demonstrated that this motivational effect occurred because backward planning allowed people to think of tasks required to reach their goals more clearly, especially when goals were complex to plan. These findings suggest that the way people plan matters just as much as whether or not they plan.
