Over the years I created my fair share of product strategies, roadmaps and project gantts. I don’t do them anymore. I found a better alternative which I’ll explain below. via Pocket

The system is called GIST after its main building blocks: Goals, Ideas, Step-projects, and Tasks. Each has a different planning horizon and frequency of change, and may use different tools to track, but together they constitute all the core planning any company and team needs to do.

I've had my fair share of strategies and roadmaps going out of sync with reality. It's refreshing to see things like OKRs (which I've had mixed results with, to be honest) packaged up with other ideas and presented as a planning methodology. As with all of these things, though, the challenge seems to always revolve around selling this upwards into a management structure so fixed in their ideas. Had my fair share of those, too.

I have seen the effects of relying on roadmaps and I believe there are better options.
