Roadmaps can be a helpful communication tool in the IT planning process to influence your organization's investment decisions.

The most effective roadmaps will help bridge the gap between strategic plans and tactical operational plans and engage a broad set of stakeholders to gain support for planned investments.

To build a compelling roadmap, start with a clear vision of both the message and your audience to determine the right data to include.  The roadmap's ultimate goal should be to improve discussion and help you and your team make better decisions.
