Why are Whiteboards a great solution for creating and managing roadmaps?

A roadmap is a must-have tool in the arsenal of any Product or Project Manager. This instrument helps to deliver both long-term visions and short-term plans in a practical visual way.

Why are Whiteboards a great solution for creating and managing roadmaps?

If a top-level roadmap is used internally within the organization, it might be enriched with Jira epics and embedded in the Confluence space. However, you might need to present a roadmap to external stakeholders or partners. In this case, it is possible to invite people from outside your organization with the Whiteboards’ Guest Access feature.

Product roadmaps are usually more detailed than high-level ones. Bi-directional advanced integration with Jira helps avoid duplication of work and brings an additional level of visibility into your roadmaps. Importing existing Jira user stories to a roadmap and creating new ones by converting sticky notes might be a huge time-saver for your team.

Another outstanding feature is the “Issue table”. It turns your roadmap into an interactive table on which cards are arranged using Jira fields, like sprint, team, priority, component, and many more.
