WHAT IS

Product Roadmap

Bruce McCarthy - teaching

Most people think of a product roadmap as a list of features with dates. This approach, however, usually results in disappointment. The initial roadmap has lots of detail but fails to set a clear strategic direction, objectives, or priorities. Worse, the details keep changing and people are left with a sense that there is no direction and no strategy.

A roadmap should instead be a tool for rallying your entire organization around your product vision and the major steps required to achieve it. And, critically, it should describe the problems to be solved rather than the detailed solutions which have yet to be tested and vetted. A roadmap is not a project plan. It is much more than that. It is a GPS for product success.
