productboard 3.0 — the most important system for product-led companiesproductboard 3.0 dramatically improves the way product managers organize feature ideas, prioritize around clear objectives based on actual business outcomes, and collaborate with other product teams.
-- Flexible product hierarchies capture large and small ideas. Product managers can easily categorize each idea into features and subfeatures that can be reorganized, manipulated, and updated in real-time. Deeper integration with Jira allows teams to push any feature or subfeature into Jira as an epic, story, bug, subtask, or any custom issue type. -- Objective-driven prioritization aligns teams around business value. Teams can now focus their product strategy and segment their roadmaps based on the outcomes they’re driving toward rather than simply the features they’re building. Objective scores identify the most strategically promising features. Roadmaps organized by objectives ensure that everyone understands how the product team’s efforts support the organization’s goals. -- Interactive prioritization matrix visualizes the value and effort of each feature.Drag-and-drop features on a new interactive Prioritization matrix to evaluate their strategic value versus the effort required to bring them to life. Set a final priority for each feature, add it to a release, and see these updates immediately reflected on your roadmap. -- New release groups and sharing options enable frictionless coordination and collaboration for product teams at larger organizations.Chief Product Officers and Heads of Product at larger organizations will benefit from a single productboard environment within which they can manage multiple products with different release schedules, while still maintaining a common insights repository, features board, and roadmap.
