As a Product Manager I have a love and hate relationship with Product Roadmap. I have struggled to answer these questions in the past: How to create a roadmap that communicates the product direction? How to answer my management team when they want "something big" in the roadmap? How to align with the rest of the team why we have such features in the roadmap?
In this session I want to share my experience on changing the way of creating a roadmap from feature oriented to outcomes oriented. I believe outcomes oriented roadmap would improve your communication with your stakeholders and gain their support. Moreover, articulate better why we are building this to your team.
Product strategies should be able to adapt to the evolving user's needs and scaling team but at the same time should always remain aligned to the company vision.
Giving examples from their own experiences, Roberta and Fani will talk through how to they approach their product strategies building from the ground up, to pivoting an existing roadmap.
