Speech: Outcome-driven product roadmap

Many organizations struggle with roadmaps, finding them difficult to maintain and hardly ever coming true. They say, a roadmap in its first edition barely resembles what they get in the end.

It all misleads into believing that the product roadmap is just some mumbo jumbo that has little in common with real business problems.

Those not given up the fight, experiment with crossbreeds of the roadmap and the release plan. Eventually, they create Frankenstein that is then preferred to be kept out of everyone’s sight, as the only thought of updating it gives a heart attack.

Whether you have already tried the above scenario or you are just about to create your very first roadmap, this session should give you some good food for thought.

Key takeaways:

  • Core characteristics of impactful roadmap
  • Advantages of the outcome-driven roadmap over the solution-based roadmap
  • Suggested format of the outcome-driven product roadmap
  • Designing a roadmap that enables quick alignment of stakeholders and fast re-prioritization
