The paper analyses a lock-in type of innovation management problem: how to renew a traditional regional industry that has been locally oriented, based on quite low technological level, and is currently faced with global competition that challenges the industry to its core. The paper discusses a project to renew the cellulosic fibre value chain through strategic technology roadmapping in the region of Green Triangle, South Australia. The project created a systematic approach for building locally grounded transformation pathways in the context of global industry transition. The project was realised in two stages. The first stage focused on the analysis of present situation in the regional forest industry. The stage two aimed at constructing strategic technology roadmaps and recommendations to catalyse industrial transformation in the region.
