Wouldn't it be great if no one could argue with your roadmap? Wouldn't it just rock if you could cut through the endless debates and circular arguments, get to consensus, and just execute?

I'm Bruce McCarthy, VP of Product at NetProspex and Chief Product Person at UpUp Labs. In 17 years as a product person, I've built a roadmapping methodology on 5 pillars:

* Strategic goals
* Objective prioritization
* Shuttle diplomacy
* Transparent themes
* Punctuated equilibrium

At last year's ProductCamp, my standing-room-only session on prioritization was a huge hit with product people. This year I will focus on translating your priorities into a roadmap that will inspire your whole team to buy-in, stick with it, and over-deliver.

  • rkrules Ravikiran R, Product Manager at AccuWeather This is a great presentation, Bruce. Thank you for sharing. I liked how obvious some of these are, but also hard hitting. I am proud of myself for doing some of these without knowing/defining them but now I understand the structure well. Particularly liked - shuttle diplomacy and prioritization steps.

  • BriandeHaaff Brian de Haaff Thanks for sharing. If you are looking to build brilliant product strategy and roadmaps, you might want to check out Aha! (www.aha.io)

    Check out beautiful roadmaps here: http://www.aha.io/product/features/info

    And sign up for a free trial here: http://www.aha.io/product/signup

    If you have not discovered Aha! yet, here's the background story.

    After our last two companies were acquired by Aruba Networks and Citrix respectively, we wanted to help product and engineering managers in software companies get their mojo back.

    We were tired of using spreadsheets and wikis and trying to apply generic project management tools that were not designed for product and software management. We also had a hard time explaining the 'whys' and well as managing all of the 'whats.'

    We also saw too many product folks beaten down by soft strategies, weak communications, and lousy tools. So, we built Aha! and seem to have touched a nerve and are already serving some of the best known technology and Web companies around.
