Why follow someone else’s path when you can create your own?
So you’ve got an idea of where you’re trying to go with your vision, you’ve defined a bunch of potential business model plays you could try out, and you figured out the relative value of your options using a framework.
The next step is to start organizing your business plays, features, or projects into a roadmap or set of multiple roadmaps that you could choose to go down.
These slides will take you through:
- What a roadmap is
- Why you need one
- The parts of a roadmap
- A step-by-step process for making one
- Tips for how to use your roadmap to make decisions along the way
