This course will teach you what a product roadmap is, why it is important, what should it contain, and how to go about the different challenges to ensure you come up with a clear and effective product roadmap.
A company has a business strategy and vision, but how do those translate to the product? Do people within the company know the why and the what behind what's being built into product? In this course, Exploring Product Roadmaps, you'll learn how to communicate the planned product features and offerings and how they align with the company strategy. First, you'll explore what a product roadmap is, its purpose and what it should contain. Next, you'll discover how to gather requirements from stakeholders, how to prioritize all these inputs, and address the challenges in product roadmap creation. Finally, you'll learn how to update the roadmap as your product evolves. By the end of this course, you'll be able to align your product offerings with the company strategy and communicate it clearly through a product roadmap.
Course Overview Hi everyone. I'm Eliska Que, and welcome to my course, Exploring Product Roadmaps. I am the owner of Sucre by Eliska and have worked as a product and project manager with several IT companies for over a decade. You may have a good picture of what your product will be a year from now, but do your customers know what they can look forward to? How about your boss or even your team? A visual, single‑page artifact can help you communicate where you want to take your product and how you plan to get there. This course is a guide for product managers on how you can create, share, and maintain a product roadmap. Some of the major topics we will cover include the goals of a product roadmap and how it differs from other artifacts owned by product managers, how to gather requirements, and how to manage them from prioritization to conflict resolution. And, we'll cover how to present the roadmap to your audience, how to update it, and other best practices. By the end of this course, you'll be able to create a product roadmap from scratch. I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn more about product roadmaps with the Exploring Product Roadmaps course, at Pluralsight.
