*This is a non-WSQ module.


The Strategic Technology and Operation Roadmap (STORM-LITE) course is to equip the participants with basic knowledge and an appreciation of strategic planning activities through SIMTech’s proven Operation and Technology Roadmapping (OTR®) methodology. OTR® is a strategic planning tool that is suitable for SMEs, MNCs or any organisations looking to create a roadmap to deal with fast-changing developments in their line of business.

Why This Course

Upon completing the course, participants will be able to understand and appreciate the architecture and feature of a strategic technology and operation roadmap® as well as:

  • Understand the role and importance of an effective OTR® facilitator
  • Learn the various basic and advanced tools that complement the OTR®

This course will teach you more on roadmap methodology and less on facilitation skills. To learn more holistic skills about the group dynamics and finer skills to draw out quality content from companies, participants can attend SIMTech’s two STORM modules “WSQ Strategic Technology and Operation Road Mapping (STORM) - M1" and "WSQ Strategic Technology and Operation Road Mapping (STORM) - M2".
