Identifying Barriers to Agile Technology Road Mapping
Paper in proceedings, 2018

This paper presents findings from two case studies relating to technology development and barriers identified. The purpose of the paper is to identify a solid baseline from which a combined technology and product roadmap can be defined, as such the first step is to rigorously describe and analyze the underlying barriers and challenges through exploring two historic cases. The project has in part been carried out as a master thesis project by the main author and later on as a PhD student project. The project identifies several issues relating to technology maturity assessments, (internal and external readiness) as well as problems relating to technology complexity.
