From the trenches: Using roadmapping for collaboration, conflict mitigation and visualization of strategic directions
A strategic roadmap is a nice thing to have: it shows a strategic design of ambitions, the driving forces and capabilities needed. But the road that leads to this roadmap can be a bumpy ride. This talk will in an informal manner and from a practitioners angle present some of the tools, processes and methods that have proved productive - and disastrous! - in the usage of roadmapping and roadmaps as a platform for collaboration. Including the conflicts and barriers associated with this. Emphasis will be on cases, examples of concrete usages of tools and methods for facilitation and visualization.
