Plan, plan, plan.
You plan everything out.
You’re going on vacation? You make a plan.
You want to achieve your goals? You make a plan.
Similarly, a product roadmap is a plan. It’s a plan of action created to determine how a product will evolve over time. A product roadmap can help you identify key steps and when to take them.
So what can a product roadmap do for you?
1. Balance Qualitative and Quantitative Inputs
Organizations often struggle with balancing their qualitative and quantitative inputs. It is difficult to understand and use both effectively. Since product roadmaps help you create that plan of action, you’ll be able to see what quantitative and qualitative inputs you’re looking for.
2. Help Make Informed Decisions
With the balance of qualitative and quantitative inputs, you’ll be able to make informed decisions as well. You’ll be able to see how your product should develop and make decisions based on those goals.
3. Organization Alignment
Organization alignment is arguably more important than a perfect app or feature. Your organization should row together to where the new direction is. Using a roadmap, your organization will be able to take actions and make decisions that align with that.
4. Keeps You On Track And Focused
Finally, it keeps you on track and focused. We’ve always been told it’s not enough to just make goals. You need to create a plan, if not, you’re not going to be able to achieve those goals
