We Agile Practitioners had the pleasure to have Roman Pichler, a leading Agile and Lean product management expert with us at our last meetup on the 9th of January 20124.
A product roadmap is a high-level plan that shows how a product is likely to grow over time. This creates a continuity of purpose, aligns stakeholders, and facilitates prioritisation. Unfortunately, I find that many product owners and teams struggle with their product roadmaps: The roadmaps are often dominated by features, and the features are sometimes regarded as a commitment by senior management.
This talk shares Roman’s insights on leveraging agile roadmaps successfully. He introduces a new goal-oriented, agile product roadmap, which combines shared goals and key features into a strategic plan, and provides an umbrella for major releases and product updates.
Roman Pichler is a leading agile and lean product management expert, and the founder of Pichler Consulting. He trains and coaches product owners and product managers, and he helps companies create effective product management organisations.
