Creating a Product Roadmap is Easy

Speaker: Shardul Mehta, VP of Product Management, Amwell

As a product manager, it is our job to drive sustainable business growth. And one of the chief ways we do that is by crafting a coherent product roadmap. Thanks to these roadmaps, everyone knows what we’re working on now vs. later, where we’re headed, and how we’re getting there. Fail at making this map, and you sacrifice not only your own credibility, but the credibility of the entire company. The bad news? Product managers rarely have the time to adequately prepare. The good news? While we should absolutely do the research and analysis needed to craft a proper roadmap, we actually don’t need to wait until it’s completed. We can actually do both in parallel. And what’s more is that once you can do that, product roadmapping becomes easy. Join Shardul Mehta, VP of Product Management, American Well, and learn how to master the intricacies of any product roadmap.
