Your business plan is not enough to anchor your business execution. Most times you need a Roadmap Document especially if your business is in a state of flux [changing market, changing model, startup, etc]. To avoid pursuing many windy paths or dead ends, it is always good to have a roadmap. That roadmap encapsulates the path to the vision with pillars and enablers which team members can understand.
Business leaders and practitioners need a framework for guiding the mobilization of an organization around its strategic plan. Such a roadmap enables business leaders and members to clearly understand each element for rolling out a strategy. It details what decisions need to be made, who needs to make them and when.
A “roadmap” enables everyone in the business to clearly understand each action and what decisions need to be made, who needs to make them and when.
The reason why things are not working is simple: all the ideas and visions are in your head. But your team members have no way to pull them out. So, at the end, no one can help you build the business. The figure below offers a methodological way to execute a roadmap.
