We've started using Strategic Themes to represent high-level "Business Outcomes". Strategic Themes offer a lot of flexibility and customization. As a result, they're rather popular and people have created a lot of them.

I want to be able to coach our business stakeholders to prioritizing the Strategic Themes so that we can focus on the vital few. However, since Strategic Themes cannot be ordered, it's challenging for me to capture the relative priority of the various business outcomes.

I would like Strategic Themes to be ordered just like Epics and Backlog Items (Stories, Defects, etc.) are.
