Connecting Product Strategy to Execution Using Roadmaps: This is the way!

About This Talk

Is your roadmap Agile? Does it help your organization stay aligned and respond to changing targets? Does it promote agility?

Today’s business environment is easily one of the most complex and volatile we’ve ever seen. Agile companies that successfully adapt their product strategy and execution plans are positioned to win.

Successful roadmapping links strategic planning with the actual product and project execution. Roadmaps provide clarity into planning and empowers decision-makers with the necessary information to adjust the plan—giving them the necessary knowledge to see how decisions impact the business, products, and projects.

Transferable Lessons from Agile in a Regulated Industry

About This Talk

Agile in a regulated industry can look wildly different from Agile in other industries. Memos, formal test plans, and signed legal documents might seem like a far cry from the “Individuals and interactions over processes and tools” statement that is at the heart of the agile movement.

Many of these processes don’t make sense for non-regulated scenarios, but with a few modifications, an equal amount of these strict checklists can be transformed into helpful tools that any project can benefit from.
