A Not-So-Serious Guide by Wise Wolves
If you’re reading this, it’s probably Monday morning; you’ve just poured a cup of coffee and aren’t quite ready to dive into full-fledged work mode. The title caught your eye — this could be useful for your upcoming projects — and reading it is a good way to be productive without revving the work engines too hard, too soon. And oh, how right you are — about the value (business AND entertainment). Let’s unpack the details of the Salesforce roadmap minus the usual snoozefest!
Why Your Salesforce Roadmap Isn’t Just Another Fancy Flowchart
Think of a Salesforce roadmap as your GPS for the wild, ever-evolving tech jungle. No more getting lost or chased by digital monkeys. This strategic plan will help you navigate through ambitious goals and challenges. It outlines where you are, where you’re heading, and how to get there without falling into any tech pits. Not convinced yet? Here are a few other enticing benefits:
Vision Board, but for Salesforce: Imagine a board where you pin your dreams — only these aren’t about fancy vacations but aligning your tech goals with real-world strategy.
Playing Favorites: With a roadmap, you decide who sits at the cool table. Prioritize tasks, champion the most crucial ones, and leave no worthy feature behind.
Being the Oracle: Predict future challenges and come up with genius solutions. It’s like having a crystal ball, minus the cryptic messages.
Making Every Penny Work: Extract every drop of value from your Salesforce investment to make the most refreshing ROI lemonade.
Who Should Help Build This Masterpiece?
Successful road mapping isn’t a solo exercise (venturing out alone is like wandering into the dark woods without a flashlight — not advised). Build an all-star crew that would make any dungeon master proud. Here’s who you need:
Business Owners: They hold the compass. They bring the vision (and sometimes the snacks) and drive the direction of the roadmap, keeping it aligned with business objectives.
IT Specialists: These are the people who transform tech hurdles into stepping stones, providing the technical expertise to realize those business visions. They also make sure you don’t accidentally blow up the digital kitchen.
End-users: They’re on the ground, ensuring the roadmap results in a user-friendly experience that boosts productivity. They also keep it real by giving straightforward feedback. (No, Todd, we don’t need another button!)

How to Chart the Path Forward: 5 Key Steps
Like ancient explorers using stars and compasses to chart the unknown, crafting an effective and efficient roadmap requires tools, insights, and a touch of intuition.
- Define Business Objectives
Start with clarity. What’s the company’s direction? Is it about increasing client retention or maybe optimizing costs? Understand and prioritize.
- Recognize Challenges
Identify potential bottlenecks and roadblocks for each objective. Whether it’s clients unhappy with a service or logistical issues like travel time, finding problems early keeps you prepared and light on your feet.
- Design Solutions
For every hiccup (or poison dart), there’s an antidote. Chart out your potential solutions, assessing based on impact and cost. This step ensures you have a route around every roadblock.
- Craft an Accessible Work of Art
Don’t make it too complicated. Help stakeholders understand the vision without needing an MFA. Organize the roadmap visually to identify priorities, challenges, and solutions quickly.
- Calibrate and Stay Collaborative
Markets change. Needs evolve. Review and tweak the roadmap periodically to keep it relevant.
