What is a product management template?

A product management template is a single source of truth for product management teams. By visualizing the short and longer-term direction of your product — as well as initiatives to achieve your vision — this template makes managing your product strategy, backlog, workflows, and roadmaps easier than ever. 

Benefits of using a product management template

Are there kinks in your product management process? Is your team moving blindly forward without an agreed plan? A product management template adds much-needed order to processes and plans, aligning the team on what needs to be done, when, and in which priority order.

You can use a product management template to:

  • Align on the steps required in the final weeks before launching a new product

  • Set, and adjust, a product roadmap over time

  • Facilitate effective group decision-making and prioritization exercises — so you know your team’s time and effort is always best spent

  • Organize and monitor your backlog, using your product management template as a visual tool in the backlog grooming process

  • … and more.
