Visualize Your Plans From 10,000 Feet
Clearly communicate your high-level priorities without getting bogged down in the details. Divvy your items into time-based buckets so that everyone knows what you’re working on now, what’s next, and what’s on your longer-term horizon. Items in the Now bucket should be detailed and include specs and user stories, but no specific dates. Items in the Next bucket should have a much wider focus, while items in the Later bucket don’t need details, as priorities may change before their development becomes relevant.
