Metaphorically, a Roadmap is a map showing the roads to reach a desired destination.
The roadmap is structured in one “high way” (the Roadmap name) that have one or more “main roads” (Objectives) connected to each high way. In turn each main road has one or several local roads (Initiatives) connected to the main road. Local roads have crossroads governed by traffic lights (Milestones). Finally, hundreds of pathways (Actions) are aligned to the local roads.
As companies can have a lot of ambitions, this framework of hierarchy offered by ActionPlanner: Roadmap, Objectives, Initiatives, Milestones and Actions, help companies structure the company goals in a logical hierarchy of activities linked into our operational work.
