The Value Complexity Matrix Template is a prioritization framework that allows teams in enterprise organizations to evaluate each initiative, project, task.

This Matrix is an answer to a question: how much value the initiative will bring, and how difficult or complex it will be to implement?

Prioritize each initiative, projects, tasks in your Enterprise by mapping their value against implementation complexity and make the decision-making process easy and efficient with KanBo’s Value Complexity Matrix template.

How to work with the Value-complexity matrix using KanBo?

Value-complexity matrices can be formatted as 4 lists (The equivalent of matrix quadrants). The business value of a project can be categorized as either high or low, whereas the implementation complexity of a project can be represented as low or high.

  1. By adding cards to individual lists and specifying their order in each list we indicate the relationship between value and complexity.
  2. Cards in List High-value, low-complexity. Are the “low-hanging” fruit. These Cards should be strongly considered for further development given their high potential impact on the business and the ease with which they can be implemented in the first order.
  3. High-value, high-complexity items are often broader, more strategic initiatives that require a much greater investment of time, money, and/or effort.
  4. Low-value, low-complexity opportunities may be worthwhile exploring eventually, but they should not be prioritized above the high-value features you’ve identified in your project.
  5. Low-value, high-complexity items should be avoided at all costs.
