Now Next Later
You should use the Now Next Later view when you need a high-level way to visualize and communicate your product plans. Since this visualization is super easy to understand and does not offer too many details it is the perfect view to use when you want to communicate with large groups of people – like a company-wide meeting or a webinar.
Divide your items into one of 3 time buckets – Now, Next and Later. Just like it sounds, you should put your high priority items in Now, and those that are a bit less important in Next. Later items are pushed off until they become a priority. Do not add too many details to Next and Later items as the purpose of this view is to provide a high-level overview of the company’s current priorities.
This view is great for external audiences or internal ones that do not usually get to see the product roadmap as it offers a general perspective on the product’s upcoming objectives.
This format will help you emphasize the order of things rather than their due dates. You set OKRs at the beginning of the quarter to give your team a sense of direction. Objectives represent your North Star. Your Key Results will help the team measure progress. And your projects are how you move the needle. Then, you should measure progress on your KRs every week to see if the work you do is having the right impact.
A Now, Next, Later roadmap makes it easy to move things around. Your Now column should not change as it is committed work, but you can quickly look at the Next and Later columns to see if there’s a better way to arrange things. Timelines don’t provide the same flexibility as they’re capacity-based rather than value-based.
