A roadmap is a sequence of initiatives, rocks, and milestones that move an organization from one maturity level to another.
There are two roadmaps in the VIS framework. The near-term roadmap represents a number of rocks that will be completed over the upcoming quarter. It is visualized on the Initiative Board. A long-term roadmap represents all the initiatives that will help to achieve the vision and is composed of value streams at all levels of the Consolidator Operating Framework.
Without having a clear roadmap, the organization is not likely to achieve goals set by the board and most likely will become incongruent to the level of maturity. This may lead to miscommunication between the departments, siloing, and lack of dependency management, which in turn will become an impediment to sustainable value delivery outlined in the Value Creation Plan (VCP).
