I utilized concept mapping to analyze the original system and rebuild a cohesive ecosystem. As concept maps evolved I was able to refine the relationships between different capabilities and streamline actions.
The concept map at right is the sixth and final that became a guide for design.
After meeting with developers I funneled their insights and the features and components into a roadmap–detailing the product build and launch based on developer work tables: two work weeks equal a sprint. The product roadmap serves as a compass for each product team member to plan by. It is a flexible artifact that helps prioritize the design, build, and testing schedule.
