What Comes First Strategy or Roadmap?

Whether strategy or roadmap comes first depends on the situation and what you are trying to achieve. If you have a clear goal in mind, then you can develop a strategy to achieve that goal. If you have a general idea of what you want to achieve, but no clear goal, then developing a roadmap can help you figure out the steps you need to take to get there.

Ultimately, both strategy and roadmap are important tools that can help you achieve your goals.

Just keep in mind that a product roadmap and product strategy are not the same.

A product roadmap is a high-level overview of the development plan for a product. It includes milestones and deliverables for each phase of development and is typically created by the product manager.

The product strategy, on the other hand, is the overall vision for the product. It encompasses the goals and objectives that the product is trying to achieve, as well as the target market and competitive landscape. The product strategy is typically created by senior management.
