A product roadmap is like a GPS for your product development journey. It’s a visual representation of where you're going and how you plan to get there. Just like a roadmap helps you navigate from point A to point B, a product roadmap helps you navigate from your current product state to your desired future product state.
Think of it as a high-level plan that outlines the key features, improvements, and priorities for your product over a specific period of time. It helps align your team and stakeholders, sets expectations, and keeps everyone on the same page. Without a roadmap, you might end up lost or wasting time on features that don't align with your product vision.
