re: Creating a Shared Vision VIEW POST


Hey Marc, as a PM I would always use a couple of minutes during the weekly demos to show the top priorities and talk about the progress we made/obstacles we were facing "these are the outcomes we want, and this is what we've done to get closer to it. Thoughts?"

It wouldn't always lead to a discussion but it would help keep the bigger picture in mind.

Some others things were not related to the roadmap and goals, but were highly effective:

  • Show videos of customers trying the product (it makes it real, and it helps create empathy).
  • Have devs attending customer interviews.
  • Relay positive quotes from users, especially when it's prompted by a recent release.
  • Get devs to try other products (gotta read the T&C first but doable) and explain back to the team what was good/bad. It helps people take an external perspective on their team.

If you want more tips related to goals I'm writing a whole guide on the topic at tability.io/continuous-planning/ (first 2 chapters now, but it'll be done next week). Happy to chat about it if you're interested.


Covering goals regularly during team catch-ups is a pretty great idea, sometimes the team feel like they're off operating in isolation so tying it back in could maybe lead to them reinforcing it with each other too!

I'll definitely take a look at these goal tips too, normally we set some short term and some long term goals, trying to make it a bit more formal and regular getting the team involved in helping set them
