How To Roadmap with the Business Value GameAlex Westner

Our roadmap doesn't make sense. Our executive team is out of touch. Why does the CTO keep going on and on about X, when we know our customers just want Y? Wait, we have a roadmap? We should just make product Z - it would be so easy to do - so what if it doesn't fit into the company strategy? Why are we not making products that our customers are passionate about?
You've experienced at least one of these sentiments before. Am I right?
The Business Value Game is a fantastic tool to align and build consensus amongst stakeholders on any kind of strategic or tactical roadmap - from product roadmaps, to marketing strategies, to devops initiatives.
I learned this game from Chris Sims at the 2014 Scrum Gathering in New Orleans, and have been using it for both feature roadmaps and product roadmaps, successfully aligning a diverse and stubborn group of stakeholders to work together for common goals.
