Outcome-Based Roadmaps: Unleash the Power of a Shared Vision & Purpose

Don’t be just another feature factory! The ultimate struggle for product teams is how to effectively communicate your product strategy upstream, while empowering mission-driven engineering teams downstream that solve real customer problems. Introducing, the Outcome-Based Roadmap!

You’ll learn to leave behind the feature factory practices that have you Gantt-charting lists of features four quarters in advance… and instead align your teams around customer-centric outcomes that deliver measurable value for customers while reducing risk for the business. Outcome-based roadmaps set the foundation for meaningful discovery, and allow a unified approach to solving the RIGHT problems.

In the session, we will discuss:
• The power of an outcome-based roadmap
• Techniques for building a customer-centric roadmap
• Examples of successes (and challenges) in introducing outcome-based roadmaps
• The role of data and objectives with key-results
