Agile teams value flexibility and validated learning. They build products in quick iterations and make frequent changes. This means deadlines are often irrelevant and long-term planning is treated as obsolete. But can you really succeed without a product roadmap?
A product roadmap is a document that describes what you want to achieve with your product and how you’re going to do it. Roadmaps are typically visualized as a Gantt chart.
There are many variations of product roadmaps, ranging from detailed plans that focus on features and deadlines to high-level statements of intent that map business goals on loose timeframes.
