Product Calgary Presents: A Road to Mapping Roadmaps

  • Solium 600 3 Avenue Southwest, #1500 Calgary, AB, T2P 0G5 Canada (map)

Hosted by Product Calgary


Have you ever constructed a beautiful roadmap, pristinely refined with every feature detailed and prioritized to perfection? Did you also shift the whole thing a week later after your schedule slipped and customers made some new requests?

Roadmapping is an essential part of the Product Management practice, but often misunderstood and a point of frustration. On one end of the spectrum, this document can be a compelling rallying cry for a team, and on the other end, the bane of a company’s existence.

Join Product Calgary, as Colin Chong walks us through his experience with effectively using Roadmaps as a product management tool. You’ll hear about how how simple roadmapping can be, different roadmapping methods, and why you just might skip roadmapping altogether.
