Card Sort

The card sort technique helps you understand which product features most and least deliver value to a potential buyer or past customer. Card sort survey participants rank your list of potential product features so that you have all the information you need to make important product decisions.

Product Feature Prioritization — also known as card sorting — is a quick way to prioritize a long list of potential features and is a great way to create a shortlist of features early on in the product development process.  Product features are characterized into easy to understand categories of ‘must-have’, ‘nice-to-have’, and ‘doesn’t-need’ so you can see at a glance which ones appeal most to different customer segments.

Outcomes Delivered

  • Launch products with the features that drive demand
  • Match the right price to your product
  • Increase value to different groups of buyers

Focus your time and resources
Identify a prioritized set of “must have” features and quickly eliminate those that won’t appeal to your target customers so you can focus your time and resources on the ones that matter most.

Understand every customer segment

You’ll see how different customer segments rank or sort items based on a set criteria, so you’ll know early in the product development process which features are most important to which customers.
