IT Innovation Council: Draft roadmap complete

IT Innovation Council: Draft roadmap complete

The group will take draft charters to stakeholder workshops for feedback

Australia's roadmap to IT Innovation as seen by a recently-formed representative body is in its draft stages and is expected to be finalised by the end of the year, according to IT Innovation Council chair, John Grant.

The members of the industry group, established by the Federal Government, were revealed early last week (click here for the full list). The objective of the council is to promote the IT sector as a motivator of innovation, productivity and sustainability.

In the first group meeting, two agendas were addressed: IT innovation within the industry and IT innovation across broader sectors.

While he could not divulge the details, Grant said a draft and a semi-draft charter, which has established major areas of action to achieve set goals by the council, have been drawn up for the two agendas respectively.

“The next step is to take those two charters to workshops in each major capital city and talk them through with our stakeholders for inputs on the documents,” he said. “These stakeholders will be members of the industry, education, research and development (R&D) and so on.”

Workshops will be held during August. A second meeting is expected around September where the documents will be finalised.

Grant anticipates the Innovation Council will meet 3-4 times a year over the course of three years.
