Rapid technology growth and globalization have led to an increase of complexity of technology management. The roadmapping process supports technology management by providing a way to identify, evaluate and select strategic alternatives to achieve a specific technological objective. The ensuing dilemma is that the development of a roadmap requires information about future events which at an early stage may be questionable. In order to resolve this dilemma, the semiconductor industry for example uses a technological overall concept, referred to as Moore’s Law. This technological overall concept serves as a Self-fulfilling Prophecy and is considered to provide orientation in the roadmapping process. This chapter refers to two different types of technological overall concepts - a sector-wide and an enterprise- specific one. The objective of this chapter is to describe the benefits, drivers, development processes, applications and successful practices of these concepts with a view to making them usable in different types of enterprises.
