Los Angeles Dinner Meeting

"Roadmaps to the Fast Lane"

David Smith
Vice President
Technology Futures Inc., Austin, TX

Sponsored by Association of Strategic Planners

Tuesday July 8th, 2003, 6pm-9pm

The topic of roadmapping is currently an approach that is being used extensively in business as well as in the political world. This presentation will explain what the various types of roadmaps are, and how they are applicable to you and your organization as a strategic and operational tool. Roadmaps can be used at an industry level, a company level, or a product level. Or, as in the case of the Middle East Peace Roadmap, it can be used between countries. This speech will go beyond the traditional technology roadmap to include areas such as services, knowledge assets, science/research, and other types.

The audience attending the presentation will receive:
