Software Vision Document Template
This is a document template which you can use if you’re writing a Vision Document for a software project. Copy the contents of this document into your own, and then work through each section to fill in the necessary information.
The goal of this document is to make sure all the stakeholders in a project are on the same high-level page. For you, the author, that means keeping the document simple and using lots of bullet points, tables and pretty pictures. Otherwise, people won’t read it. If it ends up being more than 2-3 pages, you’ve probably written too much.
We’ve based the contents of the document on a fictional piece of software called FlightView Pro, designed for the airline industry. While the nature and scope of the document are realistic, it is important to note that FightView Pro does not represent an actual piece of software.
