An outstanding product roadmap is the gear towards a successful product. It outlines the vision and the progress of a product over time.
The vision, the goals and the product backlog are the essential ingredients of a product roadmap but the prioritization is how you combine all of them to get the desired outcome.
Product roadmap prioritization
Product managers know better than anyone: a correct roadmap prioritization requires 3 condiments:
And all of them apply to the product and the industry. You need experience, knowledge and information about both; the product and the industry.
Overcoming these problems is not an easy task, that's why Leanbe is here to help.
|Experience||May cause biased decisions||May not have experience in this industry|
|Knowledge||Must be an expert on the product||It may be a new industry, needs to learn a lot|
|Information||The struggle of having all kind of info everywhere||Lot of research must be conducted|
The importance of effective prioritization
An effectively prioritized roadmap saves you time on development and budget that can be used on the needed resources. Most importantly, you create a better product, faster.
Nowadays, timing is key in any market and you can no longer afford losing time on features and functionalities in vain.
Although there are many different techniques, prioritization frameworks and strategies, in this fast paced era you need tools to help you perform the most challenging task of the product manager.
