An Agile roadmap provides guidance to organizations on anticipated future work. Such roadmaps are easy to create when teams are small and co-located because everyone can work together on the roadmap. Large, distributed teams often struggle and revert to managing future work through backlogs. In this webinar, we explored techniques that large teams can use to create roadmaps that enable— instead of strangle — a brighter future.
