This paper explores the topic of technology management (TM) through the lens of dynamic capabilities theory. Technological changes are continuously creating new challenges and opportunities new product, service, process and organisational development. However, these opportunities need to be captured and converted into value through effective and dynamic TM. This requires a new way of understanding TM that captures its dynamic nature as well as managerial aspects. A TM framework is presented that is based on dynamic capabilities theory, emphasising the development and exploitation of technological capabilities that are changing on an ongoing base. Dynamic capabilities theory is not primarily concerned with fixed assets, but rather aims to explain the way in which a firm allocates resources for innovation over time, how it generates and deploys its existing resources, and where it obtains new resources. This is highly relevant for developing an approach to TM that can explain how combinations of resources and processes can be developed, deployed and protected for each TM activity. A framework is proposed that positions TM activities with respect to the wider business context, supported by a case study to illustrate the value of the TM framework.
This article is a theoretical attempt to understand technology management (TM) using the dynamic capabilities approach. Key concepts are discussed in Section 1, and developments in the field of TM are summarised in order to explain how these have become blurred and confused over the years. The TM framework is then presented in Section 2, demonstrating the context within which TM activities take place, described in more detail in Section 3. The TM framework is illustrated with a case study in Section 4, concluding with an overview of the benefits of the new approach in Section 5.
