Lead with conviction
Set the best product strategy — one that delivers real value to customers and the business
Get clear on “why”
Great products are the result of having a clear vision. No matter whether you are a new company or one with a large portfolio, you need to know where you are headed any why. Aha! Roadmaps provides a central place to research customers needs, assess market forces, and define business opportunities. These elements are the foundation of your strategy — so you can build software that makes a difference in the lives of real people and drives business growth.
Take a goal-first approach
Define what you want to achieve and how you will get there. Follow a top-down approach that starts with overall business goals and set supporting strategies at every level of your company. Use the flexible workspace hierarchy in Aha! Roadmaps to represent the way your organization is structured and create relationships between goals and initiatives at each level. This establishes a goal-first framework that guides all the investment decisions the team makes.
Turn your strategy into a visual roadmap that aligns the entire organization around the timing and prioritization of work. Link goals and initiatives to detailed work in Aha! Roadmaps — including ideas, epics, and features — to show how everything ties together. This creates a "red thread of strategy" throughout your product development plans that explains the why behind the work and gives everyone a clear purpose. It also make it easy to monitor progress and quickly report on critical business metrics.
Aha! provides a complete picture across our entire portfolio. We can quickly access product information at any level and see how it ties to the overall strategy.Michael Morris
