www.mironov.com email@example.com 650.315.7394 1 Sample Roadmap: Introduction This is a “sales” roadmap, which is designed to show customers that your company has a plan, and that the plan makes sense We’re assuming two product lines: Desktop teleportation software suitable for tele- transporting 1 or 2 people Mainframe teleportation software for entire corporate departments, e.g. for the annual Sales meeting Normally, there are lots of development projects which do NOT fit nicely into a customer story. Grouping your projects into customer-friendly stories is half the work For each product and release, look for a “release theme” or other story that knits the R&D items together Show the requirements which match up against the features and improvements that you have scheduled Last slide has an internal engineering roadmap for contrast
