I think there are a lot of frameworks when it comes to prioritization. At the end of the day, what is important for me is a combination of 1. prioritization 2. sequencing to arrive at a confident and well executed roadmap.

I think public roadmaps make sense once you are post product market fit but it's important to remember to only lookout 6 months or so (with safe harbor for future usage/ purchasing statements).
