Agile roadmaps are - as the name implies - a very flexible and agile type of roadmap. These work perfectly in dynamic environments and markets. Agile roadmaps often have a rather short-term time horizon of 2 - 4 months. They are progress-based and avoid due dates and deadlines.
Often, executives still want to know when product updates are released. So, most agile teams use time-based roadmaps as well that show rough estimations and time units like months or quarters.
To define what items make it to the backlog or roadmap, product people often take the customer value, strategic fit and complexity of a feature, or improvement, into account.
This theme-based agile roadmap template focuses on themes and goals. Also check out our sprint-based agile roadmap example.
