About the Likert Scale Template
The Likert scale is a rating system you can use to measure complex, subjective data such as how people feel about your product, service, or experience. This template makes it easy to conduct user interviews and gather feedback.
With the Likert scale template, users can pick out a possible response to a statement or question that’s either expressed in words or numbers.
Examples of responses include a range such as “strongly agree,” “neutral,” “agree,” “disagree” or “strongly disagree,” or “strongly satisfied” to “strongly dissatisfied.”
You can also use numbers, such as 1 = “strongly agree,” 2 = “agree,” and so on.
Tips for using the Likert scale template
The Likert scale is either a five (or seven) point scale of response options that asks your customer or interview subject to agree or disagree with a statement.
The scale assumes that the intensity of someone’s attitude or opinion is linear, ranging from strongly agree to strongly disagree, and assumes that attitudes can be measured.
For example, each of the five (or seven) responses would either be counted in terms of how often a sentiment was expressed or have a numerical value that would be used to measure the attitude being explored.
Likert data can be a reliable source to point to how people think and feel, as long as you’re aware of the when-in-doubt-just-agree tendency.
To reduce the impact of this bias, researchers can...
Phrase questions as statements: presenting facts for customers to align with (or reject) can offer insight into different pieces of your business. Accordingly, the score averages give you a general measure of satisfaction that you can track over time and try to improve.
Include and evaluate both positive and negative statements, in pairs, for consistency: instead of measuring one-off sentiments, see if your customers are reliably in agreement, disagreement, or neutral in more than one instance.
When to use the Likert scale template
Researchers across disciplines, from UX to marketing to customer experience, can use a Likert scale to measure statements of agreement.
Depending on your product, service, or experience, the scale can also be used to measure:
Agreement: Strongly agree → Strongly disagree
Frequency: Often → Never
Quality: Very good → Very bad
Likelihood: Definitely → Never
Importance: Very important → Unimportant
To get a more accurate measurement of everyone’s responses, it’s worth asking people to agree or disagree with multiple statements. You can then combine or average a person’s responses.
How to use the Likert scale template
Get started by selecting the Likert scale template, then take the following steps to make one of your own:
Decide what you’d like to measure. This is the foundation for your research. Ensure that what you’re measuring can be scaled on the strength of opinions, attitudes, feelings, or experiences. Customers should see two clear extremes (positive and negative) and a neutral midpoint.
Create or edit the indicator statements or questions. The scale works best when you’re trying to find customer insights that can’t be understood with just one answer. An example statement could be, “The number of items on the takeaway menu overwhelms me.” Every statement (or each question) is trying to dig into what your customer actually feels.
Decide on Likert response scales. At a minimum, you can aim for a 5-point scale. At maximum, a 7-point scale. Any less or any more can compromise readability. Choose simple, clear language with different categories, such as “Agree - Disagree,” “Helpful - Not Helpful,” “Always - Never.” You can add or delete sticky notes (which can act as points and categories) accordingly.
Pre-test with your team. Share the Miro board with your team to test any unclear questions, awkwardly worded statements, or duplicate categories. Ask your team if every element on the scale can help you gather actionable feedback. If not, revise or delete that element.
Test (and re-test) as needed. Invite participants onto your board and ask them to respond to each statement or question. Data collection should be a process that you keep fine-tuning over time. Start with a small sample group of participants representing a larger group you’re trying to learn about. Refine – or expand – your point scale and category language as you get user feedback and calculate results.
Organize and import Likert Scale survey results visually from other sources. Import survey results as needed on your Miro board, to share and review with your team.
Priority Matrix Template
Works best for:
Business Management, Strategic Planning, Prioritization
If you need a little more than a basic to-do list, then you’d probably benefit from a Priority Matrix. The Priority Matrix template is designed to help you determine which tasks are critical so you can focus on the most urgent needs. In a 2x2 matrix, input your priorities based on whether they must be completed with high or low urgency and are of high or low importance. Applicable to project management and personal management alike, use the Priority Matrix template to improve business processes, create efficiency, remove blockers, and reduce operational waste.
Works best for:
Education, Ideation, Brainstorming
Brainstorming is such a big part of ideation. But not everyone does their best work out loud and on the spot, yelling out thoughts and building on others’ ideas. Brainwriting is a brilliant solution for them—creative thinkers who happen to be more introverted. This approach and template invites participants to reflect quietly and write out their ideas, and then pass them to someone else who will read the idea and add to it. So you’ll get creative ideas from everyone—not just the loudest few.
Works best for:
Project Management, Flowcharts, Project Planning
A timeline displays a chronological order of important dates, and scheduled events. Timelines help product managers, project managers, and team members tell visual stories about progress and obstacles. Timelines enable teams to see at a glance what happened before, what progress is happening now, and what needs tackling in the future. Projects or products with specific purpose or deliverables should be based on a timeline to be successful. Use the timeline as a shared reference for start dates, end dates, and milestones.
RACI Matrix Template
Works best for:
Leadership, Decision Making, Org Charts
The RACI Matrix is an essential management tool that helps teams keep track of roles and responsibilities and can avoid confusion during projects. The acronym RACI stands for Responsible (the person who does the work to achieve the task and is responsible for getting the work done or decision made); Accountable (the person who is accountable for the correct and thorough completion of the task); Consulted (the people who provide information for the project and with whom there is two-way communication); Informed (the people who are kept informed of progress and with whom there is one-way communication).
Product Positioning Template
Works best for:
Marketing, Product Management, Desk Research
For better or for worse, your company’s chances for success hinge partially on your market. As such, before you start building products and planning strategies, it’s a good idea to conduct a product positioning exercise. A product positioning exercise is designed to situate your company and your offering within a market. The product positioning template guides you to consider key topics such as defining your product and market category, identifying your target segment and competitors, and understanding your key benefits and differentiation.
Works best for:
Agile Methodology, Strategic Planning, Mapping
A SIPOC diagram maps a process at a high level by identifying the potential gaps between suppliers and input specifications and between customers and output specifications. SIPOC identifies feedback and feed-forward loops between customers, suppliers, and the processes and jump-starts the team to think in terms of cause and effect.
