The Science of Ranking Features

As a product manager or designer, when it comes to building a website, an app, or any product for that matter, it could be really difficult to establish the features you want to build first and define a roadmap.

Recently, I came up with a small process that I use in my own projects to attribute scores on defined features in order to rank them and maximise productivity.

Please, let me know if you have any idea to improve this method.

  1. The Science of Ranking Features Product managers, here’s a homemade

    process to build features that work for your audience.
  2. 4 Principles • Un : User need score from 0

    to 10 • t : time factor (1, 2, etc. but no 0.5) • Final score will be defined by Un/t • The closer to 0, the less important
  3. Defining Un - Combo coeficients • “Must Be” = 2.

    • “Delighter” = 1. • “Perfomance” = 1.5.
