Technology Roadmaps 2.0 – Research from the Canadian Government on using ‘Technology Roadmaps’ for industry and economic development, is a key inspiration for this service.
Idea to Venture Lifecycle
The backbone of each community is the ‘Idea to Venture Lifecycle’, a method of organizing Open, grass roots innovation into formal ‘PLM’ – Product Lifecycle Management.
Site visitors can submit ideas, organized into topics relevant for that roadmap, and from there progressed through an escalating series of planning tools and decision workflows, until ultimately populating the Product Roadmap.
A working example is our Action the Ivany Report initiative, where the Community Roadmap describes how this is implemented towards a goal of local Economic Development.
