Roadmapping the future of our industry
April 2, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 6:00 pm
Most of our members have a strategy in place for their businesses. But does it take into account planning for your future technology needs?
This can be a huge capital expense, and not one that you want to be unprepared for. That’s why it’s become clear that in the current business climate, planning a clear line of sight on how you’ll be able to plan for such technologies and resources is key.
Our ‘Roadmapping our future’ workshop is designed to achieve this. Allowing you to get to grips with future megatrends you should plan for in your business and how as an industry you might be able to collaborate to develop out a stronger equipment capability together.
You’ll come away with the tools and insight to stage gate your technology needs so it’s more achievable from a cost, resource and time perspective while aligning this with your strategic focuses.
We’ll also focus on showing you how to manage your IP and share it in a safe way so that you’re able to get crucial feedback without risk of losing your IP value. This is very important so you can gain critical diverse thinking and a trusted feedback loop so you can innovate effectively.
By the end of the event you’ll have a clearer perspective on where your business is at in the industry context, valuable insight on how to implement workshop learnings, and more.
This is a rare and not to be missed opportunity.

IP management using agile methodologies
There is a trend towards open innovation and agile business practices (e.g. lean, MVP and pivots). However, the new wave of agile methodologies developed for digital technologies need to be adapted and integrated into traditional stage-gate methods to realise their full potential when producing physical products.
We also see that the scale and joined-up nature of business in New Zealand brings special challenges and opportunities for collaboration among organisations.
Participants will learn how to:
- implement the best combination of agile and stage-gate processes to ensure the company develops new products effectively and invests in the right projects.
- realise the benefits of effective collaboration among businesses (e.g. partners, customers, suppliers, etc.) by applying proven techniques.
Roadmapping the future
The second part of the workshop will be about strategic industry roadmapping. Roadmapping is widely used to support strategy development and innovation. It offers a proven framework for aligning strategic perspectives with technology perspectives.
In this workshop, participants will:
- learn about roadmapping techniques and how they can be used
- collaboratively develop a ‘first-cut’, high-level industry roadmap for New Zealand’s heavy engineering steel industry
