Product Management – From Mission to Roadmap

When we are talking about a roadmap in the context of product management, we mean A shared source of truth that outlines the vision, direction, priorities, and progress of a product over time. It’s a plan of action that aligns the organization around short and long-term goals for the product or project and how they will be achieved.

It is an essential tool for product planning and serves as a communication channel between product management and other stakeholders. Product managers need to understand how to create a product roadmap and how to keep it updated, and keeping it updated with reality is the challenging part.

As Mike Tyson said: “Everyone Has a Plan Until They Get Punched in the Mouth.”
Or in other version (popular in the army) – “No plan survives first contact with the enemy.”
That’s why we must invest in keeping it as close as possible to the changing reality.

Second order thinking in practice

Some decisions seem like wins at first, but turn out to be losses over time. Second-order thinking is the ability to think about the consequences of one’s actions, and to consider how different courses of action can affect the long-term outcomes. It is a tool that will help you examine the long-term effects of your decisions.
In some cases, try to shift the timelines. Will this decision be impactful in 5 days? 4 weeks? 12 months? 10 years?

By doing this, you are looking at the larger picture and taking a longer-term view.
To do this well, you will need to look at both the direct and indirect consequences of your decisions

Second-order thinking involves taking into account the ripple effect of your decisions and how they can affect the future. It requires you to think beyond the immediate outcomes and consider the future implications of your current choices. This is especially important for business decisions, where a single decision can have lasting implications.

How To Learn A New Company?

When you are coming to a new company/team, you want to learn about it.
Usually, you wish to do it quickly because there is (always) pressure to start a be ‘productive.’
There are many cases when the opposite is better for the long term.
You want to take your time and learn more about the WHY without giving your biases a place to run. However, reality forces us to push and try to make things faster/better.

Here is a plan that worked for me in the past.

UX/UI Designer Role At ESGgo

There is an increasing interest in how companies are managing their environmental, social, and governance (ESG). Since it’s a new topic, many companies struggle to cooperate with the changing demand around the ESG arena.

This is why we are building a new platform that will help companies leverage ESG and not struggle with it. Instead of manual data entry into spreadsheets or emails over long threads, our platform automates data collection and reporting across all the company departments. It will also have the ability to create reports, dashboards, and benchmark information that will help you identify gaps. On top of it, we will have an AI layer that will provide recommendations for setting goals and improving ESG standing against any reporting framework.

What is ESGgo?

ESGgo is the ESG-operating-platform for global enterprises.
A group of experienced business professionals and technology experts from Facebook, Google, and McKinsey and teams from the leading Israeli army technology units gathered together to impact the world positively.

We provide best-in-class tools to collect the hundreds of ESG data points across the organization, capture the data and simplify the work-streams.
Moreover, the ESGgo system enables departments to collaborate and analyze the ESG status. Later, the system automatically shares it with the different stakeholders: the management team, board of directors, and even external reports to shareholders.

One of the system’s unique capabilities is that competitive analysis tool: it allows companies to compare external rating agency scores and competitor benchmarks and suggest tactical and strategic actions that could help increase their ESG score.

The ESG Data Ambiguity

TL;DR

ESG rating services are essential for investors. However, there is a high variance between them and when I’m saying high variance – it’s more like huge variance.
A good example is America’s most valuable automobile company – Tesla.
MSCI ranks it at the top of the car industry for sustainability, whereas FTSE ranks it as the worst car producer globally. 

Yes! 

You read it right. 

Tesla is both the best and the worst.

One rating agency claims “It’s the best” while another is putting it in last place. The discrepancy reflects the fact that MSCI judges Tesla to be almost perfect on carbon emissions because of its clean technology, while FTSE, which evaluates factory emissions, regards the firm as a serious offender. In this post we will see what are the characteristics of this challenge and how ESGgo platform can help to address them.
