One Week Product Roadmap
Learn how to quickly set direction and gain credibility for yourself in just seven days
“My roadmapping skills have been self-taught. I was concerned that my level of expertise in this critical skill may fall short. I found the class to not only prepare me with best practices and real-world examples, I also left with the tools needed to start a new product with a solid plan of attack. Highly recommended.”
- Russ H., Product Manager
Creating a product roadmap is one of the most important deliverables for a product manager.
It’s so important because it not only sets the direction for your product, but also affects your credibility as a product manager.
As a product manager, it's our job to drive sustainable business growth. One of the chief ways we do that is by crafting a coherent product roadmap. Thanks to these roadmaps, everyone knows what we’re working on now vs. later, where we’re headed, and how we’re getting there.
But fail at doing this, and you sacrifice not only the direction of your product, but your own credibility.
And the unfortunate reality is that product managers rarely have the time to adequately prepare.
Given those stakes, it's no wonder we struggle with roadmaps.
But it doesn't have to be. There is a way. It's actually not that difficult to create a product roadmap.
I know because I've been doing it for years for all kinds of technology products across all kinds of industries.
In this masterclass, you will learn how to create and publish a prioritized roadmap in just seven days that key stakeholders can rally around and get engineering delivering as quickly as possible!
Here's what the course covers:
- Practical strategies and pragmatic lessons that can be applied immediately to your product
- Content based not on theoretical frameworks or ideological methodologies, but actionable tactics that have been battle tested in the real world
- A variety of roadmap formats, and when and how to use them
- Plenty of real world examples of actual product roadmaps
- Online discussion board
Coolest of all, we’ll go through an actual, live example of creating a real product roadmap for an actual product. We’ll go through the process of taking a jumbled backlog of features and enhancements and converting it into a beautiful roadmap that everyone can get excited about and make you look like a rockstar. It’s a really cool process, and you will definitely get a lot of value out of it!
“Very practical advice! This course covers all relevant topics with the perfect amount of time spent on each topic, and helps you connect all the dots to build a roadmap, both strategic and tactical.”
- Priya R., Senior Product Manager
