How to Create a Roadmap for a Project or Organization?

  1. Gather a cross-functional team

As the first step, put together a team that includes representatives from all areas of the organization, relevant to the project or organizational requirement, to work on the roadmap. Hold a kickoff meeting to discuss the purpose and narrow down the requirements.

Gather everyone to the Creately platform to discuss and work together via its integrations with Microsoft Teams.

  1. Identify the goal and objectives

Visualize the roadmap by setting the objectives, goals and initiatives that need to be taken. Explain how each will support the overall business objectives with the data/notes panel pertaining to the relevant shapes and icons. The team can either create a roadmap from scratch or opt to use an already available template to edit and customize. Use the extensive color themes and advanced formatting capabilities to create what the team requires.

  1. Identify milestones and prioritize tasks

Break the project or the identified organizational requirements down into smaller, manageable milestones. This will help the team to track progress and measure success easily.

Review and manage ideas. Use Creately’s prioritization grids from the template library or frames to manage ideas and rank them according to the impact it would have on the business.

  1. Discuss the roadmap and finalize

Bring participants from different departments and discuss the roadmap against the business requirements. Identify the specific requirement and objectives that best support your strategy. Also, make sure to invite stakeholders to provide input and feedback to ensure that it aligns with their needs and expectations.

Use Creately’s in-built whiteboarding features and intergrations to connect with the participants. Once finalized, use Google/Microsoft add-ons, embed in an email, website, or export the roadmap in various formats including SVG, PNG, JPEG, and PDF.

  1. Assign tasks and establish a timeline

Now that the team has prioritized and finalized the roadmap, divide the milestones into specific tasks and assign them to respective departments or team members. Create a timeline for each milestone and task, including deadlines and dependencies. Use Kanban boards and the data panel to split the tasks into releases and assign deadlines.

  1. Set up regular meetings and track progress

Schedule regular meetings with the team and departments to discuss progress, address pressing issues, and to make adjustments if needed.

Use smart notifications and full version history to keep track of changes and to revert back to an earlier version if needed.
