our roadmap priorities
The Long Term Strategic Roadmap is OUR tool
Focus project work and expense on approved roadmap efforts
Manage incremental requests for work through an exception process
Revisit priorities, new strategic objectives and additions to the roadmap annually
Collaboration & Common Goals
are Our Keys to Success
And yet, only the beginning.
Let's build our well structured strategic roadmap!
So, what should we do?
And, what do we get?
