Product & Portfolio Roadmaps – Template With worked Examples
Templates & Examples for new Product Managers and Business Owners
When you start a new business or a career in product management, the initial phases are tough. There is so much to learn, and the pressure of delivering the product can make the overall process a little bit daunting. There are tons of online tools available in different price ranges to help you with your strategy, roadmap, business plan etc. The challenge with that approach is that you don’t always know what you really need when you are new, and it’s easy to get distracted. So, we have created a few simple, low-cost, and easy-to-use templates with worked examples based on more than a decade of product management experience in the telecom industry. So, rather than getting lost in the details of business management or the complexity of an online tool, you can use a more logical approach to get started by using templates with examples, so you know what to write.
This template is for portfolio and product roadmaps. In product management, you can come across two kinds of portfolios; the one we are talking about here is a product portfolio which means a collection of products. An inter-related use of the term ‘portfolio’ is in the project management area where a portfolio is a collection of different programmes. It is important to make that distinction if you are a new product manager in a large organisation because you are likely to work with project and programme managers.
A portfolio roadmap is a high-level document outlining the key capabilities you plan to deliver through the products included in your portfolio. It shows how you plan to evolve your portfolio over a certain period of time in line with your company vision.
A product roadmap is a slightly more detailed document that outlines your specific plans for the evolution of your product. It shows how you plan to grow your product through the features in line with your portfolio vision.
In this template document, slides 5 and 6 allow you to create portfolio and product roadmaps. Slides 7 and 8 are worked examples that can help you with your thinking process.
