Now-next-later roadmap is good for:

Communicating with large audiences (e.g. an All-Hands or Town Hall meeting). Simple, streamlined layout reduces noise and is easy for everyone to understand. Communicating broad plans without committing your team to specific deadlines.

Now-next-later roadmap is not good for:

Communicating with executives. If your audience needs any kind of detail – deadlines, teams, or company objectives, for example – this won’t be enough information. Consider an Objectives timeline roadmap.
