If you hate waiting around for decisions to be made, raise your hand.
I know how you feel. Traditional roadmapping sessions with Post-Its and spreadsheets are all very well… but they take time. You have to get everyone in the same room at the same time… And they can be confusing as hell.
So here’s a question (or two): are you drowning in a sea of information? Does trying to pull everything together with Post-Its, spreadsheets, and emails sometimes feel like clutching at straws in a hurricane?
Just when you think everyone’s on the same page and you’re ready to push the button on a project — someone pipes up that they haven’t seen the latest data, and they’re baffled by the decisions so far (understandably, because there’s no audit trail).
And as for presenting the information — there’s a reason that old joke about “death by PowerPoint” never dies… Let’s be honest, most presentations are dull. But worse than that, they’re linear. Restrictive. Inflexible. So when someone has a question, you can’t answer it on the spot… and that means more time spent analysing and rearranging data when you could be making decisions.
Working with lots of people all over the world means projects often progress at a glacial pace — and even then somebody gets left out of the loop.
Wouldn’t you love to find a quicker, easier, sexier way to gather, analyse, and distribute all that information? And present it in a simple, compelling format that’s easy to understand at a glance?
If I told you there was a way to do just that — bring all your data and plans together in one place, make it available to everyone on your project, and do away with time-consuming Post-It and spreadsheet sessions — would you believe me?
