We are pleased to announce the release of the SiriusView “Product Planning, Prioritization and Roadmapping 2017.” This SiriusView covers seven vendors whose offerings are designed to assist product managers with developing product plans, prioritizing features and enhancements, and maintaining and communicating product roadmaps.
The solutions described in this report offer product managers the potential to improve efficiency and effectiveness as well as align better with stakeholders such as product development, sales and marketing. They can also enforce consistent product management practices across an organization. As with any tool, however, these solutions cannot fix broken processes or make up for lack of competencies within a product management team. These tools are most effective when they are used to facilitate a best-in-class innovation and go-to-market process such as the SiriusDecisions Product Marketing and Management (PMM) Model and when product managers have training and support to ensure they possess competencies in key areas such as market opportunity identification, product definition, product strategy and planning, product delivery, and growth and portfolio management.
