What will I learn about?

What is a technology roadmap and why should an organisation have one? With increasing pressures of digital innovation, demand for ‘smart’ products, shifts from product ownership to subscription and service business models it can be clear (sometimes!) the vision you have for the products and services that will define your business in the future.

BUT how do you get there? In this interactive session you will learn some of the basics of technology roadmapping:

  • Understanding the purpose of the exercise
  • Who should be involved and their roles
  • The steps to take to deliver a technology roadmap

This session will also use case studies to highlight:

  • the benefits and impact of technology roadmapping on a business
  • potential pitfalls and issues to be aware of


Learning outcomes

By the end of the session attendees will:

  • Have a clear understanding of the purpose and benefits of a technology roadmap
  • Be familiar with the steps taken when conducting a technology roadmapping exercise
  • Be signposted to support for those that want to progress to developing a technology roadmap for their business
