What is a product roadmap?
A product roadmap is a document that outlines the big picture vision for a product and is used to track product development step by step, allocate resources, and identify blockers in real-time.
Product owners use roadmaps to outline future product functionality and when new features will be released. Having a good product roadmap in place facilitates easy conversations with project stakeholders to protect resources, determine prioritization, manage expectations, and balance priorities in order to ship deliverables on time and in line with the product market demands.
Understanding the role of a product roadmap — and how to create a great one — can help your teams have better alignment to achieve business goals together.

For executives and managers, product roadmaps quickly relay updates on the status of projects and tasks and allow owners and leads to communicate priorities effectively.
For teams, roadmaps provide a clear understanding of the "big picture," which helps team members focus on the most essential tasks, avoid scope creep, and make fast, autonomous decisions.
Great product roadmaps can provide immense value to every person involved with a project.

Who needs a product roadmap?

Product Roadmaps come in several different forms and serve a variety of audiences. What's awesome about product roadmaps built in Coda is that you can easily create unique views to suit your team's needs and preferences. Let's check out a couple examples:
Product Manager roadmaps
Roadmaps for executives or product managers are usually organized by team and emphasize how all the teams' work supports high-level organizational goals and metrics. You might also want to organize this view by month or by quarter to show progress over time towards goals and include a less detailed view of specific project tasks.
Engineering team roadmaps
Nowadays, development teams or engineering teams can create roadmaps in more than one way, depending on how they like to work. They can organize their map by prioritizing customer value, target release date, or milestones. Since many engineering teams use agile methodologies, these team roadmaps are usually organized by sprints and might include a timeline that displays specific pieces of work or problem areas.
These are just a few ways product roadmaps can be useful to a variety of different teams, with differing priorities. But how can a product roadmap serve you and your company specifically?
