How many times have you been asked the million dollar question: "When will this (feature, project, product) be done?" Most agile teams and organizations often grapple with being able to confidently answer that question when communicating with stakeholders. We often try to "guesstimate" when something will be done based on gut, fear, or hope.
We should take great pride in building a culture of "Hope Killing" by understanding what it takes to build (and deliver) realistic road maps in order to have meaningful conversations with leadership teams allowing them to confidently predict and deliver, manage expectations, and facilitate decision making.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Participants will be able to:
  • Gain an overall understanding of the concepts of a roadmap framework
  • Build visual roadmaps to facilitate road mapping sessions
  • Understand the various components needed to build a roadmap
  • Identify and understand the link between value delivery and dependency management
  • Discuss and understand the impact of "curve balls"
  • Facilitate the process to recast the roadmap
  • Understand how to manage stakeholder expectations to facilitate decision making
