Check out this book if you have asked any of these questions
- How to create a product roadmap?
- How do I communicate product strategy in a product roadmap?
- How do I communicate more clearly in a product roadmap?
- How do I show the direction of updates for the product lifecycle in an Agile roadmap?
- How do I get more buy in and support for my product strategy?
Avoid some of the pitfalls of more traditional product lifecycle and product management plans by using a more Agile roadmap. It will let your own and manage the work, communicate what needs to be communicated, and not tie up too much effort in the administrative work of communicating product strategy.
Product roadmaps communicate the vision and direction of a product. They translate strategy into higher level work items, combine multiple work streams into a visual depiction of work and priority, and make this information easily digestible to the users and stakeholders. But what all should be included in the roadmap? How about items to avoid? If these are questions you have asked, then look no further.
About the Author
Over a 15 year career, entirely in software development team roles, I have observed and experimented with practices for the teams. I have learned what works and what does not work. I continue to leverage these ideas and help grow teams today.
Over the course of my career, I have worked in large Fortune 500 companies, with massive development teams. Those teams working in Agile, working Waterfall, and working something in between. I have also worked in and experienced the start-up culture. As well as other smaller or medium-sized development teams. There are unique challenges on larger and smaller teams, but there are also universal challenges. The concepts I will bring forth will help regardless of team size.
All experience has shaped my ideas. Shaping them into what works. A lot of trial and error has occurred, but it has shaped the information I use today. This information is born of concept and fundamental discussions with many teams and peers. I have condensed into this cheat-sheet. To give you the no-fluff material, that will provide you with ideas to grow immediately. It is a no BS guide, of concepts and practices, that can really help you grow in your role.
