  12. 12. Panel Questions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. First, some mechanics: What's the right horizon for a roadmap? The right granularity? The right cadence for doing it? What is 'enough' detail? Should there be different versions for different stakeholders? Why or Why not? Who approves your roadmap? Some people use ‘themes’ on roadmaps. What are some examples of themes you’ve used? Is Roadmapping more an Agile or Waterfall practice? How does your product roadmap relate to your other planning artifacts for Strategic Plan, Ops Plan, Release Plans, etc?
  13. 13. Panel Questions 7. Does the roadmapping process differ in a young/small company vs. a mature/larger enterprise? If so, how? 8. Has a roadmap ever been 'used against you'? Any lessons? 9. What are some tools you've found to be the most useful? Spreadsheets? Powerpoint? Wiki? other? 10. Do you leave roadmaps behind with customers or prospects? Are they confidential? Why / Why not? 11. Other than your own, what’s the best roadmap example you've ever seen? The Worst? Why? 12. Have you ever gone back to look at one of your roadmaps a few years later? A bit like your HS yearbook picture?
