The key to getting buy-in from senior management is to demonstrate feasibility, efficiency, and relevance of your plans to the strategic company goals.
Share eye-opening facts about your portfolio to make your point
Use Portfoleon to plot your projects on a single diagram where risks, benefits, and costs are clearly visible.

Find resource bottlenecks early and take action. Reshuffle your projects and immediately see the effect of your actions on the resource load.
Make a case for additional resources if you need to move faster.

Portfoleon supports simple roadmapping alongside with more complex use cases such as lean resource management.
Starting with Portfoleon is as simple as with any visual roadmapping software. We optimized the UI for fast and easy interaction. All boards support drag-and-drop. In the spreadsheet board you can copy-paste from Excel / Google Sheets and drag-to-fill to quickly edit many rows at the same time.
Our Roadmapping plan provides simple visual roadmapping features. However in the future as your product management or PPM evolves, you will need more than displaying diagrams. This is why in our Portfolio Management plan we implemented lean resource management, bottleneck analysis, and simple budgeting.
