Product Planning and Roadmap Cycle

A robust planning process should follow a multi-step cycle that takes care of different time horizons.

A strong roadmap process is essential for several reasons:

  • Forces setting of strategic priorities and hard trade-offs
  • Enables capacity planning for staffing and infrastructure
  • Provides sense of reliability and predictability to key customers (and investors!)
  • Revenue impact planning for relevant key features

Pitfall: Jumping directly from the grand long-term vision right into nitty-gritty sprint deliverables without fleshing out the middle layers first is a frequent mistake. It will lead to a growing disconnect between long-term planning and what the product team is working on.
