Set up a custom prioritization framework
The outcome-based roadmap helps outline the potential scenarios for the product. Product teams can use an outcome-based roadmap to better communicate, collaborate and align with stakeholders on the what and the why of product development. with our outcome-based roadmap template, you can get started reaping those benefits in no time at all!
An outcome-based roadmap differs from other roadmaps a product team might use, in that it’s focused on the overall goals and objectives of the product development, rather than features or sprints. These goals will also often be critical to the success of the business.
Tony Ulwick of Strategyn has been quoted saying: “Without knowing precisely what target you are trying to hit, your chances of actually hitting it are slim.” And that’s exactly what an outcome-based product roadmap helps to avoid.
How do you create an outcome-based roadmap for yourself?
Step 1: Meet with the team, and key stakeholders to (re)agree on your product vision, strategy, and objectives.
Step 2: Distill these high-level goals into actionable ‘wins’ for the product development team.
Step 3: Build and design your outcome-based roadmap (we’ve got a template for that!) and put priorities in place.
Step 4: Share your outcome-based roadmap with the team and have it tattooed on their arm (we’re joking, of course, but the team should consider this roadmap as the holy grail for project planning.)
If there’s one thing we can rely on in business, it’s change. Teams often find that their overall goals shift over time as other priorities emerge.
That’s why it’s important to use an outcome-based roadmap template that’s easy to adapt.
The airfocus outcome-based roadmap template includes an outcome-based roadmap board, a backlog with a customizable prioritization framework, a 4x4 priority chart to visualize your quick wins and don’t dos, and a timeline to visualize your release plans. It only takes a few minutes to set up and evolve, as you need.
