Value-Complexity Matrix

“I like to think of projects as a journey from the abstract to the concrete. Here’s a simple path: Do business strategy / user research | Make a list of features | Create features | Code features. Somewhere in that ‘list of features’ step is a big transition from mushy research to getting down to work. Once I know what the features are, the list is prioritized. The feature prioritization is based on the user research and the business strategy, along with the initial technology estimates. I like doing this prioritization exercise in person with all the stakeholders so all viewpoints can be factored in. It’s a seminal meeting and the results guide the rest of the project.”
