IEEE Oregon Section TEMS Workshop Series - Technology Roadmapping
January 19th
8:00 AM (4 hours)
Bldg 38
Admission fee may apply

Technology roadmapping is a comprehensive approach for strategic planning to integrate science/technological considerations into product and business aspects as well as to provide a way to identify new opportunities in achieving the desired objective from the development of new technologies. Roadmaps can take many forms, but the common feature is the use of simple graphical frameworks to support the synthesis, alignment, and communication of complex strategic issues.  The course will provide participants with an introduction to both the concept and application of roadmapping, including a combination of presentations, group activities, and discussion. The activities provide an opportunity to put the concepts into practice.



How You Will Benefit:

—  The course will provide participants with an introduction to both the concept and application of roadmapping, including team exercises.

—  The team exercises will enable participants to apply the class content and enhance their learning experience.

—  The course will provide application examples from different industries like the one provided below for energy efficiency
