What are the RICE und ICE scoring models?
RICE and ICE are frameworks for evaluating and weighting your projects. The RICE method evaluates the Reach, Impact, Confidence, and Effort of a project using key figures, and offsets them against each other as factors. The resulting RICE score can then be used as a point of comparison for prioritizing the ideas in your roadmap.
The ICE model works in a similar way, but the factors which are assessed are Impact, Confidence and Ease; these are then multiplied to produce an ICE score, which is used in the same way as the RICE score. Both models are simple and effective value-based evaluation systems for weighting your projects.
What are the goals and benefits of the RICE/ICE scoring models?
Both these methods allow you work out which of your projects and ideas should have the highest priority to objectively and straightforwardly. Instead of having to make a complicated assessment of each project, which is very time-consuming and often based on pure intuition, the metric-based RICE/ICE scoring system allows you to make a consistent and neutral assessment.
What can the RICE/ICE scoring models do for your business?
As well as helping you make data-based assessments of the projects in your roadmap, these methods can efficiently align the interests of managers and stakeholders. RICE and ICE also help teams make collaborative decisions quickly and efficiently, whilst meticulously weighing up all the most important factors, including those which are often neglected in subjective scoring.
You can use the RICE/ICE prioritization methods to evaluate projects on a quantitative level. These methods lead to assessments which are not just unbiased, but which also remain dynamic; they have been proven to be effective and save time. All the relevant factors are weighted so that each aspect has an influence on the overall RICE/ICE score which is appropriate for your business.
