How do I create a Roadmap Slide in Apple Keynote?

Step-by-step Keynote Roadmap Template Example

If you have a presentation to do, and are using Keynote on a Mac, here’s the process to help you.

How do I create a Keynote Roadmap slide?

1. Create 2-5 horizontal workstreams, one for each ongoing area of your product or project.
2. Set the Timeframe along the top (weeks / months / years).
3. Establish the important activities in each workstream.
4. Communicate risk levels, emphasise the highest 1-3 risky areas.
5. Set a few Milestones along the timeline at the top.
6. Add callouts for any remaining important messages.

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.
