Working in collaboration with The Australian National University (led by ANU Edge), the CRC for Rail Innovation and Strategic Connections Group, IfM ECS is helping to create a roadmap to support an effective and efficient rail supply network well into the 21st Century.
IfM ECS, a world leader in roadmapping practice, were commissioned a second time, following the success of the earlier Automotive Australia 2020 Roadmap. Australian Government appointed Rail Supplier Advocate Bruce Griffiths initiated the railway project, based on first-hand experience from participating in the automotive roadmap and having witnessed how beneficial it was to both the industry and his own automotive company. A team of Commonwealth government, state governments and industry supporters were gathered to fund and drive the project forwards.
Roadmapping is used by a wide range of organisations and industry sectors to facilitate communication, collaboration and shared decision-making. It attempts to answer three key questions: Where are we now? Where do we want to be? How can we get there?
