Strategic Management of Technology


Course Description:
Focuses on the strategic management of technology and innovation in established firms. The conceptual framework of the course is an evolutionary process perspective on technology strategy and innovation. The fundamental ideas underlying this evolutionary perspective are (1) that a firm's technology strategy emerges from its technological competencies and capabilities, (2) that technology strategy is shaped by external (environmental) and internal (organizational) forces, and (3) that the enactment of technology strategy, through the experience it generates, serves to further develop the firm's technological competencies and capabilities. Cases, readings, and lectures are utilized. [2]
