Effectively Communicating Product Roadmaps
You’ve figured out the future roadmap for your product, so the hard work is done, right? Not by a long shot. Even the “best” roadmap will fail if it’s not documented, presented, and communicated appropriately. Do customers misinterpret your roadmap? Do salespeople misuse it? Do executives question it? Do developers laugh at it? There are common mistakes that most product managers make when communicating their roadmaps, and certain tips and tricks that can be employed to avoid common pitfalls. This session will present challenges, examples, and some recommendations, and then open the discussion for participants to share their experiences on what’s worked and what hasn’t.
