WhatsApp finally published an official API. Unfortunately this API is still very restricted (= you have to apply for it) and so far I get the feeling they only give it to big brands & corporates. There’s still no way for a platform (like oratio was) to leverage this kind of API on a bigger scale.
Unfortunately all these bags are gone by now :/
Thanks Bert for the feedback!
I agree, features should not be a part of the roadmap (and I never suggested they should be!). Roadmaps should be more abstract and high level (“What do we want to achieve?” rather than “What should we implement?”)
For roadmap planning, a different strategy or framework is definitely a better fit. I’m personally a big fan of OKRs.
Both, empowering people while the company grows and making sure they feel a sense of purpose are really good questions. I think there’s no general answer for that but definitely at least a few good examples to learn from: Netflix, Facebook, Buffer, …
Will definitely follow up on this topic.
