How do I use milestones on a Roadmap?
Milestones are essential in breaking down goals and initiatives to deliverables in projects and workstreams. A milestone displays as a vertical line on the ITONICS Roadmap with a customizable icon on top. Use milestones to align the organization and rally teams around deliverables. It could be an internal milestone such as presenting a prototype, or it can be an external event such as a conference where the new product will be demonstrated.
How do I foresee pitfalls and mitigate risk with the ITONICS Roadmap?
The Roadmap lets you make connections between activities to visualize dependencies to identify hurdles and critical paths to completion. You can quickly spot pitfalls within a roadmap, for instance, if an activity won't be done in time for another dependent activity—even across business units or verticals. Use the Roadmap to understand how different factors influence the progress of your innovation initiatives. Without it, innovation efforts are at risk of becoming unsynchronized with capability and resources. You can also add scenarios into Roadmaps to consider unforeseen market events.
How do I align stakeholders and drive strategy execution?
The Roadmap visualizations allow transparency on all activities and strategy execution. Either top-down from a strategic perspective, or bottom-up from one project to everything interlinked and dependent. By creating an overarching roadmap, you have a straightforward entry point to communicate the larger plan to the organization and align stakeholders. It is also an effective way to compile progress updates from different departments. Just assign a responsible representative in each team to update their activities, then the roadmap becomes a shared, dynamic view of progress.
Are there templates I can use?
Yes, get started quickly with best-practice Roadmap templates. Select from the most common roadmap types used in different industries, including Product Planning, Service & Capability Planning, Knowledge Asset Planning, and Strategic Planning. You also have the freedom to create your own templates from scratch.
Why should I choose ITONICS Roadmap?
