Strategic Roadmap

Purpose: The purpose of the Strategic Roadmap template is to document initiatives and projects over time from the perspective of a specific narrative. Strategic Roadmaps are not static and should ideally be revisited and iterated upon.

Below, you can see an example of a Strategic Roadmap for the implementation of two systems:


Core concerns: Using the Strategic Roadmap, you can model Initiatives and Projects, Timeframes and, if needed, connections. The Strategic Roadmap should be given a limited scope of a department, a program, or a strategic initiative. Typically, the enterprise will document several strategic roadmaps from different perspectives and business units.

Below, you can see an example of a Strategic Roadmap describing a company’s asset management initiatives over four years:


Relation to other templates: The Strategic Roadmap can show strategic initiatives over time that may be shown in other strategic diagrams such as the Strategy Model. For a more extensive overview of projects you can generate a Gantt chart using the Business Chart template.

Properties and metadata: The Strategic Roadmap can for example retain the following information:

  • A description of the diagram
  • Link to the owner of the diagram
  • Link to the one responsible for the accuracy of the diagram
  • Audits (auto generated information regarding its current state and access rights)
  • Associated documents, diagrams and other objects
  • Inherent Risk detailing risk considerations
  • Governance information detailing information about the published diagram and who has been involved in the approval of the diagram
  • Project status: information about budgeted and actual man-hours spent, percentage completed and the latest milestone, result and quality control of a change process.

In the picture below you can see the Strategic Roadmap’s properties dialogue window, where the properties can be viewed and edited:
