What's product vision?

Your product vision is meant to keep you and your team’s efforts on track. It starts with crafting a solid product vision statement that should resonate with you, your team and your company—but there’s a lot more work involved. As a product manager, you need to be able to communicate it effectively to the team, the stakeholders, and your customers.

When you start by building an actionable, user-centric vision statement, you can trust that your product goals, product strategy and product roadmap are on the right track. Because the product vision is one of the pillars of building the right product, it’s important to spend time making sure it’s tangible, achievable and meaningful.

Use the tools in this guide to craft, build and reinforce a product vision that will guide your decisions, before any prioritization work comes into play.
