How to Prioritize Features and Functionality with a Product Roadmap
#Roadmap #FeaturePrioritization #ImpactAnalysis
Remember Jack? He is a product owner of a new software application. He had a team of developers, designers, and testers working on the application, and he wanted to make sure that they were all working towards the same goals.
Jack knew that it is important to prioritize features and functionality when creating a product roadmap. He didn't want to add too many features at once, or he would risk overwhelming the team and delaying the project.
He also didn't want to add features that weren't important to the users. He wanted to make sure that the application met the needs of the target audience.
To priortize features, Jack started by creating a list of all the features that he wanted to add to the application. He then used a variety of factors to prioritize the features:
Impact-Effort Matrix. Jack assessed the importance of each feature to the users and ranked them based on their significance. This matrix provides a clear understanding of which features held the highest priority and needed to be implemented first.
Jack assessed the resources required to develop each feature, including developers’ skills, availability, and workload.
Using the complexity analysis and resource allocation, Jack created a develppment timeline.
Jack then shared the product roadmap with the team, incorporating the prioritized features, development timeline, and resource allocation plan, and got their feedback. He also kept the roadmap updated as the project progressed.
The feature sets include:
F1. Calendar Integration
F2. Task Management
F3. Scheduling Capabilities
F4. Calendar Reminders
F5. Event Notes
F6. Mobile Access
F7. Privacy Settings
F10. Contact List Integration
F11. Recurring Event Support
F12. External Links & Attachments
F13. Filters & Tags
By prioritizing features and functionality with a product roadmap, Jack was able to ensure that the application was developed in a way that met the needs of the users and the team
