SUNDAY REWIND: Roadmaps are Dead! Long Live Roadmaps! by C. Todd Lombardo

BY ON

As our Roadmapping Focus Week draws to a close, we have decided to close on this epic #mtpcon San Francisco talk where C. Todd Lombardo takes on a topic that is emotional to most of us as product managers – the product roadmap.
