Keynote Presentation

Technology Roadmapping

Technology roadmapping is a comprehensive approach for strategy planning to integrate science/technological considerations into product and business aspects as well as to provide a way to identify new opportunities in achieving a desired objective from the development of new technologies.
The roadmapping approach is flexible, and can support many different strategic aims, where there is a need to align different functional strategies or organizational perspectives (for example, markets, products, services, technology and resources). While the dominant term is ‘technology’ roadmapping (due to the historical roots of the approach), ‘strategic’, ‘innovation’, ‘business’ or ‘industry’ roadmapping are perhaps more appropriate given the potential uses of the method.

Educational Presentation

Creating and communicating a culture of inclusion in politically divisive times

For the most part employees know that their organization expects that conversations and activities not related to work shouldn't make them lose focus or get detracted from their "real" work. However, employees have a right to discuss "issues" that they think may directly affect their working conditions. Educating and communicating with co-workers on how others might perceive their rhetoric might help in alleviating some of these issues. Project managers should be cautious in that none of their communication initiatives alienate their co-workers.
