I have a presentation to do, and I am using a Mac. How can I create a Roadmap slide?

Summary

  1. Name your workstreams.
  2. Set the Timeframe.
  3. Establish the important activities.
  4. Communicate Risk levels.
  5. Set Milestones.
  6. Add remaining important points.

More detail

In ALL AREAS, you should be focussing on keeping the message simple and clear. You must be able to read the whole roadmap template within 5 minutes.

  1. Name your workstreams.
    1. We advise 3-6 workstreams.
    2. These can be teams, or categories of work.
    3. Try to avoid acronyms or jargon.
  2. Set the Timeframe.
    1. Not too long – be careful of over-promising in the long term.
    2. Think about your target audience for the roadmap, and manage expectations.
  3. Establish the important activities.
    1. These are your projects or features or initiatives.
    2. Do not list them all – just the important information you want remembered.
  4. Communicate Risk levels.
    1. Another great way to manage expectations.
    2. Be honest, and be clear.
    3. Admit when you do not have a mitigation.
  5. Set Milestones.
    1. Again, just the important messages you want to sink in.
    2. Five or six should be the maximum.
  6. Add remaining important points.
    1. Are there any points left as part of your story?
    2. Add them in.
