CSIR Transportek decided to undertake a business and technology foresight study in order to enhance its decision making process for the investment of its Parliamentary Grant funding. The study was divided into four phases comprising the following:

• A desk study of international trends reported by Venter (Aug 2002);
• An internal workshop to develop scenarios, identify future trends and challenges and provide a vision of the industry in 10 years time in terms of structure, funding mechanisms, capacity and technologyneeds;

• An external stakeholder workshop to test the validity of the outcomes of the internal workshop; and
• Analysis, offering portfolio definition and testing of the robustness of the portfolio.

Five scenarios were developed using the inputs from the desktop study as well as the internal and external workshop. Transportek’s current offering portfolio was reviewed and shortcomings identified. The portfolio was evaluated for robustness against the set of scenarios and recommendations made
