Limited Capacity seats available

If you’re managing your agile delivery using projects—and not products—you may be missing the point. After all, the product-to-be is the basis for the vision, goals, and expected outcomes you’ve defined for your work. Learn how your organization can benefit from an essential product management tool—a product roadmap—and how to adapt your product roadmap to your agile projects.

A product roadmap articulates how you will continually deliver a valued product over a long time horizon and provides a framework for decision making. Most agile teams focus on plans at the tactical level, such as iterations or work-in-progress (the Now-View) or near term releases (the Pre-View). But that practice can result in products that fail to provide the kind of value the organization expects. Your product roadmap focuses all stakeholders on the strategic Big-View and guides you in continually adapting immediate and near-term planning.

In this session, we explore the whys, whats, and hows of product roadmaps. You learn how to define steps for building and sustaining your product roadmaps, how to determine who is involved, and how to evaluate the options on your roadmap. You’ll also learn the essentials of facilitating roadmapping workshops. Join us to learn how product roadmaps are used on agile projects to help you deliver the right product, align organizational ends with means, adapt to changing product needs, and make tough choices that will deliver greater strategic value.
