How to Use the Alignment Matrix

Once scores have been entered in the Your Score view you can use the Alignment Matrix to see at a glance which features people think are important and agree on and which features are less important and are more divisive.

Alignment Matrix Landing Page

Once the user selects the Alignment Matrix in the left navigation bar they are brought to a screen where that is separated into three different segments: “Cut Candidates”, “Build Immediate”, and “Need More Assessment”.  Features are placed on the graph based on the prioritization score that was calculated in the treeview and the alignment score calculated in the team score view.

Features that are in “Build Immediate” are those that have both a high alignment and high prioritization score.  As a result, these are features that everyone feels are critical to the success of the product.

Features that are in Cut Candidates are those that people felt were not important and also had a low prioritization score.  As a result, these features can be safely cut for the time being.

Features that are in “Need More Assessment” are those that people were split on and need more data in order to make a more informed decision on.  We would recommend conducting some user research in order to clarify this.
