Managing technology

  1. 1. Praveen Sidola 1021026 Managing Technology MBA -J Technology management addresses the effective identification, selection, acquisition, development, exploitation and protection of technologies (product, process and infrastructure) needed to achieve, maintain [and grow] a market position and business performance in accordance with the company’s objectives. • Establishing and maintaining the linkages between technological resources and company objectives is of vital importance and represents a continuing challenge for many firms. This requires effective communication and knowledge management, supported by appropriate tools and processes of particular importance is the dialogue and understanding that needs to be established between the commercial and technological functions in the business. • Effective technology management requires a number of management processes for identification, selection, acquisition, exploitation and protection of technology. These processes are not always very visible in firms, and are typically distributed within other business processes, such as strategy, innovation and operations.Technology management framework, showing technology management processes (identification,selection, acquisition, exploitation and protection), business processes (strategy, innovation andoperations), highlighting the dialogue that is needed between the commercial and technologicalfunctions in the business to support effective technology managementBibliography - Robert Phaal, Clare J.P.
