5 Product Management Buckets
The 5 Product Management Buckets
This Trello board helps product managers track and manage their tasks effectively without hassle. Work items are split into 5 different categories - each category consists of a bucket to which its respective work items are assigned.
- Bucket 1: Work In Pipeline
Future items, Work items under iteration, Use Cases Analysis, Ideas to discuss, etc.
- Bucket 2: Work In Progress
Work Under Progress, Current development works, Work under UI/Prototyping, etc. Leaks to be fixed (Bugs, Enhancements, Follow-ups, Second Phase Items, etc.,.)
- Bucket 3: Work Completed
Completed work items that have cleared the second bucket, then move to this bucket. These items have to be tracked further for usage and scalability.
- Bucket 4: Track Completed
This is an important bucket in the product management cycle where we track all the completed works items and then get insights into how the feature/item is doing. This also involves customer follow-ups and tracking the usability of the converged item.
- Bucket 5: Goal Achieved
This bucket is used to get an ideal list of micro-level goals. Usually, all the features (ideas and works) are moved to this bucket. We can set some benchmarks and track it to the real completion. Once we see a clear ROI of the feature convergence, we can move it as GOAL ACHIEVED. There can also be some macro-level goals that we can set as a target for a few items. This can be set based on some clear indicators and KPIs.
I've used the following Power-Ups in this board:

We can easily add custom data by using this Power-up. Custom fields like text, numbers, checkboxes, dates, and drop-down lists can be added for marking any specific cases or solutions.
Goal Of This Board
To stay organized with the product management tasks and push a work item through different stages and transform it into the feature it was envisioned to be. In an SDLC, product managers play a vital role and the work doesn't end once the feature/enhancement is made live. The actual task starts after it is shipped to the customers. There has to be aftermath for each and every works and it is ideal to track the completed work. Product Managers can set some benchmarks and track it to the real completion. Once we see a clear ROI of the feature/enhancement convergence, we can move it as GOAL ACHIEVED.
