About

The IEEE Roadmaps Strategy and Governance Ad Hoc Committee (IRSG) was created in 2018. Overseen by the IEEE Technical Activities Board (TAB) and supported by IEEE Future Directions, IRSG is working to provide guidance and infrastructure to support technology roadmap activities across the IEEE.

The growing interest in technology roadmaps spans a wide range of IEEE organizational units. IRSG seeks to enable the success of IEEE’s roadmap activities by leveraging the expertise of experienced roadmap developers to create tools and templates and document a high level roadmap development process to assist new roadmaps.

IRSG looks forward to its transition to the IEEE Roadmaps Committee (IRC) on 01 January 2020.

 

 

IRSG Committee Goals and Objectives

 The IEEE Roadmaps Strategy and Governance Ad Hoc Committee seeks to support IEEE (technology) roadmap activities through:

  • Building an IEEE roadmaps infrastructure, including the creation of policies, procedures and guidelines to aid in roadmap development.
  • The formation of the Roadmaps User Group (IRUG):
    • A congenial environment to discuss common challenges, goals and objectives;
    • An experienced team of roadmap developers making their expertise available to others via the creation of common methodologies and best practices.
  • Developing roadmap templates and checklists
  • Centralizing and improving distribution of completed roadmaps
