ICE is an acronym for Impact, Confidence, Ease. Each factor is graded on a 10-scale and the average of the three numbers is the calculated ICE score. It's essentially a simpler version of RICE, without the Reach variable and using Ease instead of Effort.
When to Use ICE:
Use the ICE model when you don't feel the need to differentiate between reach and impact.
How it works in GLIDR
Once you've set up Product Scoring, you can assign scores to your Ideas either from within an Idea card, or in-line in List View. Using the guidelines above, you can use the sliders to change the values in each of the fields and GLIDR will calculate your ICE score. Updating any of the fields will automatically change your score.
You can filter by Product Score while in List View, by selecting the ICE filter and choosing the range of scores you'd like to see. For example, using this to move low scoring Ideas to the Backlog, and prioritizing your higher scoring Ideas further up your Roadmap.
