Product Vision Template

Bring value to your users and develop better products using this Product Vision Template. Help teams craft a killer product vision statement and improve your business and customer experience.

About the Product Vision Template

Product manager Merissa Silk developed the Product Vision Template to help teams bring a product mindset to their projects, where products are developed with a customer-centric approach. This template helps teams to run product workshops, and in the end, you’ll craft a robust and consistent product vision statement to guide your product decisions.

What’s the Product Vision Template?

The Product Vision Template is a great tool to use when running workshops to develop new product features, ideas, and goals, envisioning your product roadmap for the next three years.

The template is divided into nine areas:

  1. Problem Statement

  2. Target Audience

  3. Needs

  4. Features

  5. Unique Value Proposition (UVP)

  6. Goals & Metrics

  7. Voice of the Customer

  8. Experience Principles

  9. Product Vision Statement

In the template you’ll also find facilitation tips and other resources on how to run the workshop in a remote or hybrid setting.

Benefits of the Product Vision Template

The product vision board is a great way to center your product discussions around the users and develop better strategies to bring them value. After you run a product vision workshop, you will be able to:

  • Adjust product scope and timeframe.

  • Explore product concepts.

  • Explore new feature ideas.

  • Define a three-year company-wide product vision.

How to use Product Vision Template?

Select the Product Vision Template and add it to your workshop board. Then, follow the steps below:


  • Run an async brainstorm so people add their ideas before the workshop. This will prevent group thinking bias and bring agility to your session.

  • After the brainstorming, cluster ideas and add an Affinity Map Template to your board.

  • Share the board before your workshop and give people enough time to read it before the session.

Product Vision Canvas Template FAQs

How do I start a product vision session?

When facilitating a product vision session, ensure everyone did the prep work so you can be agile while running this workshop. Share the board beforehand, and when running the session, break people into small groups, so they can brainstorm and discuss ideas together. Repeat the process for each template section until you reach the workshop conclusion. Remember to create a safe space where people can add ideas freely and use artifacts to direct your workshop better, achieving the session's desired outcomes.

What teams should be involved in defining and writing the product vision statement?

As a product owner, involve your direct team to craft your product vision statement. Other marketing, brand, and development stakeholders can also participate in your workshop as consultants.

Works best for:

Education, Retrospectives, Meetings

A retrospective template empowers you to run insightful meetings, take stock of your work, and iterate effectively. The term “retrospective” has gained popularity over the more common “debriefing” and “post-mortem,” since it’s more value-neutral than the other terms. Some teams refer to these meetings as “sprint retrospectives” or “iteration retrospectives,” “agile retrospectives” or “iteration retrospectives.” Whether you are a scrum team, using the agile methodology, or doing a specific type of retrospective (e.g. a mad, sad, glad retrospective), the goals are generally the same: discovering what went well, identifying the root cause of problems you had, and finding ways to do better in the next iteration.

Combining Agile and UX, a project canvas complements user stories with personas, storyboards, scenarios, design sketches, and other UX artefacts. Product canvases are useful because they help product managers define a prototype. Creating a product canvas is an important first step in deciding who potential users may be, the problem to be solved, basic product functionality, advanced functionalities worth exploring, competitive advantage, and customers’ potential gain from the product.
