This product roadmap timeline serves several strategic functions. For starters, it conveys the priority order of a team's initiatives based on when they intend to begin working on each one. Second, it communicates how much time the team anticipates devoting to each project. Third, a timeline roadmap informs the company when each initiative should be completed. This roadmap has a timeline across the top, and all industries are written in bars below the timeline. Each bar on a timeline roadmap will be drawn long enough to depict that initiative's estimated start and completion times.
