Do You Have a Business Roadmap?

Do You Have a Business Roadmap?

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.

Phases of the Roadmap [iSixSigma]

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.

In my practice, we call it Frontier Roadmap & Strategy. We synthesize businesses and from there extract elements and anchors to help clients execute their business visions. It is a fusion of how a consultant looks at problems and how practicing entrepreneurs see the challenges in markets.

There are rats in the room; trying to catch all at the same time is a recipe to disaster. When you have a roadmap, you become more disciplined in your processes. If for any reason you have a need to get order in that business execution, reach out to my team at [email protected]
