Outcomes not Output.

It takes a vision lead approach to Product Development

For many product managers filling a product roadmap template becomes a never-ending chore and is the bane of their life.

This is not about a form to be filled but a process where the real change happens in the mind of the team. 

This approach allows you to

  • build products that evolve, are scalable, repeatable, reusable

  • prioritise requirements,

  • deliver products that maximise revenue/returns

  • gain organisational buy-in

  • develop product families, evolve product lines in a cost effective/low risk manner

What is a product?

It is “the thing that does the thing”

Even if you have the insights of Steve Jobs in “knowing what the customer wants” developing products is a team process. It’s not about scoring a single goal but winning the game.

It’s the Journey not the Destination

Think of it as building the “team” that builds the product that does the thing….

A good product roadmap is one of the most important and influential tool/map an organization can develop, publish, and continuously update. This can steer an entire organization when it comes to delivering on company strategy.

This practical course shows you how to create an effective product roadmap and demonstrates how to use the roadmap to align stakeholders, prioritize ideas and requests.

This approach can be used for any type of “product” or service from software, hardware, a physical product, media/content, SaaS, and also internal “products and services” within an organisation.
