Now Next Later

The Now-Next-Later roadmap is a product management framework designed to replace timeline-based roadmaps, which often impose restrictive deadlines and hinder flexibility.

The Now-Next-Later roadmap organizes work into three time horizons:

  • immediate (Now)

  • near future (Next)

  • long-term (Later)

It reflects the urgency and priority of each initiative. This approach aligns closely with business objectives, saves time by preventing premature detailing of future tasks, and supports more impactful decision-making. It is particularly beneficial for lean and agile teams, offering a human and flexible alternative that accommodates varying levels of certainty and fosters a focus on outcomes rather than rigid deadlines.
