We’ve moved our delivery practices to lean and agile methods but somehow left our product planning process in the same place it was 20 years ago. We over plan, over promise and publish a roadmap that’s out of date before you can hit print. But why? If our goal is to give the customer what they need, when they need it, the product roadmap has to die.
Learn how to leverage just-in-time thinking for product discovery and definition through portfolio kanban. Create a funnel to validate opportunities before they make it to the team’s backlog. Use lean experimentation methods to ensure customer value. Visualize the work and use simple flow metrics to accurately forecast delivery dates. Explore how kanban can be more than just a tool for delivering faster and can finally be the Death of the Product Roadmap.
