At the first Project Management meeting, @mrz walked me through how he likes to make road maps, and I think it’s pretty cool. We’ve started drafting a similar vision and roadmap for our team, and obviously need your input.
You can see our draft on Confluence here.
Vision, Mission and Strategy##
At the top of the page we have defined the overall vision, mission, and strategy for the team. @mrz, let me know if I haven’t defined these well! I think they’re easier to understand when looking at what we’ve selected for each of these boxes.
Vision: This is the change you want to see in the world.
Mission: This is what you want to accomplish towards achieving that vision
Strategy: Is how you are going to pursue your mission
The road map should be organized into what we’re calling “Pillars.” These are themes or boxes that your activities can be isolated into. You can have a few, but in our case I think it makes sense to have a pillar for each isolated project we’re working on. Though you can see I’ve also included “Documentation” which reaches across projects.
This is very much in a brainstorming phase, and I could use your help coming up with ideas for more pillars, or ideas for things that would combine well into a single pillar.
