Transcript of "Managing technology and innovation"

  1. 1. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Customization  Toyota is gearing itself to deliver a custom built car within five days of receiving the order.  Dell promises delivery of a customized PC within a few days of receiving the order.  Motorola delivers their made-to-order cellular phones the next day to customers anywhere in the United States.
  2. 2. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Customization  Standardization starts upstream - raw materials, fabricating  Customization starts downstream - special features & services  Key question is how far upstream in the value chain can or should product/service be customized?
  3. 3. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Customization  Standardization Strategies for Enabling Customization – Part Standardization: By using common components across members of a product line, the firm reduces costs (due to economies of scale), reduces inventories (due to risk pooling), reduces parts proliferation, and improves the predictability of requirements for components.
  4. 4. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Customization  Standardization Strategies for Enabling Customization – Process Standardization: requires that the process be modular and enables the firm to store inventory in semi- finished form (before full information about demand is realized) and later customize the product according to requirements.  Benetton's sweater-making process primarily consists of two stages: knitting and dyeing. The original process was to dye first and then knit based on requirements. However, the main source of demand uncertainty came from the choice of colors that customers wanted. So in order to exploit that Benetton resequenced the process by first knitting the sweaters and then dyeing them after perfect demand information was obtained.
  5. 5. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Customization Standardization Strategies for Enabling Customization – Product Standardization: offer large variety of end products, but stock only a few in inventory.  Advertise availability of products far greater than actual availability on average.
  6. 6. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Customization  Standardization Strategies for Enabling Customization – Product Standardization (continued)  If customer requests product version not normally stocked, the manufacturer either makes the product after receiving the order or, downward substitutes (provides the customer one of the available models that has a superset of features required by the customer.) – Downward substitution is quite common in the semiconductor industry where a higher speed/functionality chip (under appropriate circumstances) is marked as a lower speed/functionality chip when the lower-end chip is not available in inventory
  7. 7. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Speed It is not enough to be fast - one also has to achieve a better balance of speed, low cost, high performance, and high quality. For example: Rule of 10X - technology in question must be 10 times better than what it is replacing. More accurately, Consumers need to perceive new technology to be 10 times better to think it worth the upheaval of changing.
  8. 8. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Speed Speed depends on the ability to: 1. Initiate and manage change inside company 2. Use and provide leverage in market chains to initiate change in other companies.
  9. 9. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Speed Ability to change inside the firm depends on ability to avoid the “competence trap” Competence trap: firms that strive for competence within a given strategy can become trapped in this strategy and miss opportunities for strategic change
  10. 10. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Speed Competence trap derived from routines and procedures successful in past: promotion and hiring incentive systems capital budgeting organizational structures personal commitment to status quo
  11. 11. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Speed Some methods for avoiding the competence trap:  Avoid organizing around strict product “modules”(Intel’s emergent product teams). Avoid complete dependence on existing customers and suppliers for new product & service ideas (Microsoft’s multiple vendors of X-Box software). Focus new product development teams entirely on unserved markets (Nokia’s evolution into “wireless home”).
  12. 12. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Knowhow The critical role of CLUSTERS in global strategy Competition is dynamic, depends on innovation, search for strategic differences Location affects competitive advantage through impact on productivity and productivity growth
  13. 13. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Knowhow The critical role of CLUSTERS in global strategy  A Cluster is a critical mass of companies in a particular field in a particular location and include a group of companies, suppliers, firms in related and complementary industries, infrastructure providers, knowledge creators, and collective associations.
  14. 14. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Knowhow The critical role of CLUSTERS in global strategy Clusters improve productivity by  providing access to specialized inputs and information,  facilitating complementarities among cluster participants,  improving performance measurement  improving rate and success of innovation  lowering barriers to entry
  15. 15. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Knowhow The critical role of CLUSTERS in global strategy Cluster theory and Globalization  a firm must harness advantages of spreading activities across locations but also capture the innovation advantages of home base  outsourcing reduces locational disadvantages, but limits access to cluster-associated resources  locating in cluster may reduce overall costs
  16. 16. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Knowhow The critical role of CLUSTERS in global strategy  Examples of Emerging Clusters in Nanotechnology: – Northern California – Austin, Texas – Tsukuba, Japan – Stirling, Scotland
  17. 17. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Time Pacing: Combining Speed and Knowhow Time Pacing  Creating new products or services, launching new businesses, or entering new markets according to the calendar.  Time-pacing is not (just) SPEED ; – It is synchronizing SPEED and INTENSITY OF EFFORT.
  18. 18. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Time Pacing: Combining Speed and Knowhow  Manage TRANSITION and RYTHM – Transition: capable of moving into new products, businesses, markets, acquisitions, mergers, etc. – Rhythm: in sync with cycles linked to external agents – customers, suppliers, competitors, and even regulators.
  19. 19. Managing Technology and InnovationManaging Technology and Innovation Industry Case: The race for the world VCR market Product development is a 100-yard dash; Industry development & transformation is a triathlon. Stages of Industry Development and Transformation 1. Competition for Industry Foresight and Intellectual Leadership 2. Competition to Foreshorten Migration Paths 3.
