What: List of Announceable Features Planning to be Released

The Quarterly Release Bucket at $Company is a list of [[announceable features]] that we are planning to release in a given quarter.

We use the term “bucket” to clarify that a Quarterly Release can and should contain several unrelated features and improvements. We also want the term “bucket” to imply that features can be thrown in and taken out before the “bucket is passed”. But what is not acceptable is that there is no bucket to be released, or that it is almost empty.

Why: Connection between Product/Engineering and Marketing/Sales

The Midstage Institute came up with the term “Quarterly Release Bucket” to help tech scaleups build a constructive interface between product/engineering on the one hand, and marketing/sales on the other hand.
