The Wizeline Score algorithm does not take Survey responses into account. The Wizeline Score captures objective data that lives in Wizeline — such as pervasiveness of demand, business impact, cost to build, and more — and produces a single number to represent relative priority based on these measures. You’ll notice that subjective data — such as personal preference — is not included in Wizeline Score, but is taken into account in a prioritization Survey.
Keeping objective and subjective measures separate makes it harder to ‘game the system’ with creative Survey responses, and allows for comparison between these two values. With this approach, you can compare what the objective data tells you to what certain groups or individuals want and use that information to drive alignment in your team when objective and subjective priorities don’t match up.
