More detail

It’s fun – and it’s all about constraining the available detail. You can use Google Sheets, so there is no need to sign up to expensive Roadmapping SaaS software!!

Guidelines: You need to keep it simple!

  1. Brief your team that you need to ensure it is readable within 3 minutes.
  2. Limit the workstreams to a maximum of 5 or 6.
  3. Don’t try and represent all the detail – just enough to tell the story!
