While working on a Board, a program manager often works on more than one board initiative (like themes and epics). While developing objectives parallelly, it becomes challenging to keep track of their planned duration, deadline, and resources. Also, if any initiative is getting delayed, then assessing the impact of that delay becomes difficult, which may have serious repercussions to the overall objective that needs to be delivered.

The Roadmapping module is used to monitor all important dimensions of a typical initiative and check if the time or effort to complete the task is as per the plan. This module gives you a multi-dimensional view, which helps you decide how you want to track the progress of your initiative, whether it is distributed across teams, across boards, across multiple hierarchy levels. It offers you an overview of your Theme/ Epic/Release/Sprint in terms of its progress, distribution of work, demographic information of the resources, and the relative sizing of the work involved. This makes the Roadmapping module your one-stop solution, as all the information is available under a single umbrella.

Note: After purchasing the  Roadmapping module, you need to enable it. To know more about enabling the Roadmapping module, see this section.
