This interactive workshop is designed to develop the capability to create integrated technology and strategy roadmaps, linking customer insights and unmet needs with potential technology and Product solutions.
Roadmapping is a tactile activity and the format of this workshop is very much about “learning by doing”. Exercises conducted throughout the workshop will allow active learning, embedding the skills required for your business to continue its use of Roadmapping on completion of this event. Manual roadmapping materials will be used and provided as a record of the exercises conducted and as a toolkit to allow continued use of the techniques.
Two other key elements of this workshop offer unique learning opportunities for participants: Workshop keynote presentation and support from Dr Irene Petrick – Professor at Penn State University and Director of Strategy at Intel; and technical support on Roadmapping including the capacity to build Roadmaps “on the fly” using Sopheon’s Accolade software solution.
