Overview

Technology roadmapping is a core function in technology management aimed at optimizing the R&D portfolio of advanced organizations by mapping future product and service strategy against the existing knowledge, capabilities and intellectual property (IP) portfolio of the firm. The framework presented in this class, the Advanced Technology Roadmap Architecture (ATRA), was implemented on a $1 billion class R&D portfolio at Airbus, which has since ascended to become the number one manufacturer of civil aircraft in the world.

When you enroll in this course, you will receive two complimentary chapters from Prof. Olivier de Weck’s eTextbook, Technology Roadmapping and Development: A Quantitative Approach to the Management of Technology. The book complements the Foundations of Technology Roadmapping course by detailing topics regarding principles, methods, and tools of technology management for organizations and technologically enabled systems.
