Do you want to position your organisation's technology for the future?
Many successful companies are now taking a strategic approach to technology sourcing, but with shifting customer needs and 'disruptive technologies' forming part of the strategy, it can be difficult to know when you are making well-informed technology and product investment decisions.
If you’re responsible for finding and assessing external technologies for your organisation, Dr. Paap’s Product and Technology Roadmapping Masterclass in partnership with Planisware is not to be missed.
This masterclass will break through common misconceptions and give real-world examples of the variety of roadmaps, while explaining how each can balance both long and short-term objectives and deliver value to your organisation.

An intense day with theory, pragmatic solutions, and introspection into things we can try over the short term and longer term.
Dr. Cooper, 'The Godfather of Stage-Gate,' does an exceptional job educating us on real life examples of the implementation of the agile method do's and don’t's.
This masterclass provided several easy-to-apply methods that could immediately be implemented, along with several others that I can take back to management to examine how they may be fit into existing processes.
