What is a monthly product roadmap?

Whether it’s a B2B SaaS company or a consumer-facing app, product-driven companies use the product roadmap template for organizing and aligning different departments on a unified vision and actionable plan. This document is used by the product manager to communicate product goals, direction and progress to both internal departments and external stakeholders, and allows product teams to assess new requests for functionality against what is already planned. The roadmap should outline high-level product strategy and detail how a product will evolve over time, including upcoming feature additions, technical fixes, R&D, and the go-to-market strategy.

The monthly roadmap template sets the pace for regular updates on how your company as a whole is working towards meeting business objectives with respect to a particular product or project. The monthly roadmap details your product goals and the tasks and deliverables required by different departments in order to meet these goals.

How do you create a monthly product roadmap?

Add goals, tasks and due dates or notes to help your team visualize what’s in progress, what’s next and what’s completed. Change statuses as you go and share the link to your product strategy roadmap to keep everyone aligned on goals and expectations.

To fully communicate the product direction and progress to internal teams and external stakeholders, you’ll want to gain insight and feedback from each team (research, design, development, marketing and sales). This will help you assess and tackle risks and roadblocks before they become a major issue.
