After the initiation phase it’s time to become more concrete and start the preparation for the actual development of the roadmap. Together with all the stakeholders the ideas must be put into practice. That starts with drafting and finalising the roadmap. When starting this process it is key to take into account the user needs. Although every country or sector initiative must devise the process to develop the roadmap according to its specific context, the following steps can be taken:

  1. Vision and goals
  2. Action plan
  3. Draft roadmap
  4. Review roadmap and stakeholder support
  5. Revise and finalize roadmap
  6. Disseminate roadmap and execute first steps

Special attention is required for securing the resources needed, especially when it comes to people and funding. Another important aspect is who will have the ownership of the database.
