Seminar Technology Strategy & Roadmapping

An explicitly formulated technology strategy will enable you to set priorities, make the right decisions and use your resources efficiently. The aim of the Seminar is detailed presentation incl. deepening of the key elements of a successful technology planning, technology strategy, and technology road mapping. The benefits, content, and procedures of the development of a technology strategy and roadmap will be presented. Moreover, company-specific approaches will be elaborated. The focus of the seminar will be on practice-oriented lectures based on findings from the Fraunhofer IPT‘s longstanding consulting practice, combined with work units in small groups. The maximum number of participants is 20.

Seminar Technology Intelligence

In view of the ever-shorter product and technology lifecycles, the worldwide rapidly growing technological knowledge and new customer requirements in global competition, the need for an early and effective technology detection is steadily increasing. The aim of the Seminar is to provide a detailed presentation incl. a deepened knowledge of the essential elements for a successful technology foresight. Therefore, procedures, tools and methods will be presented and specific solutions will be developed interactively in a case study. The focus of the workshop will be on practiceoriented speeches based on findings from the Fraunhofer IPT‘s long-standing consulting practice, combined with work units in small groups.

Innovation Days

Innovation Day – Digital Process Optimization

Modern information systems allow us to track the execution of business processes. They allow us to obtain valuable traces of event data, describing the historical behavior of the process. However, interestingly, when companies aim to get more insights in their business processes, they typically rely on stakeholder interviews, to construct an overview of the process. Process mining techniques allow us to get an overview of the process and to get insights in conformance and performance statistics of the process, on the basis of event data, capturing what actually happened during the exeuction of the process.
In this innovation day, you learn how to get advanced insights in business processes, by means of analyzing historical data captured during the execution of these processes. The impulse event provides an overview of the possible applications and enables you to apply the method of process-oriented data analysis independently on the basis of an industrial case study.
