A roadmap for “the” product roadmap: Teresa Torres’s OST in action

Roadmaps vs OKRs

Teresa Torres’s Opportunity Solution Tree

  • Why do customers NOT return after 30 days?
  • What do customers remember about our product after 30 days?
  • How do customers feel about our product after their first month?
  • What is the difference between a 1-week customer and a +30-day customer?
  • Value Risk (Does the customer want it?)
  • Usability Risk (Can the customer figure out how to work it?)
  • Feasibility Risk (Given our resources, can we implement the solution?)
  • Business Risk (Is there anything wrong with the solution in a business sense?)

How did OST work for us?
