Sometimes stakeholders don’t get along. Or their view of the product doesn’t match. Or their priorities don’t jive. That’s where Shuttle Diplomacy goes a long way. I like to meet with stakeholders individually as I’m drafting a new roadmap. Then we meet all together for final buy in.
I go in deep on Shuttle Diplomacy in Chapter 8 of my book Product Roadmaps Relaunched. Got pissy stakeholder stories to tell? How often do you meet as a group? Tell me a story.
