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.
- By adding cards to individual lists and specifying their order in each list we indicate the relationship between value and complexity.
- 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.
- High-value, high-complexity items are often broader, more strategic initiatives that require a much greater investment of time, money, and/or effort.
- 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.
- Low-value, high-complexity items should be avoided at all costs.
