This course relates to the various agenda concerning technology strategy at the level of the firm, sector and national systems of innovation. Based on empirical research findings, technology strategies in sectors such as information and communications, consumer electronics, pharmaceuticals, telecom services and robotics will be analyzed. Strategies towards globalization and national systems of innovation in different countries will also be examined. Students are assessed by class participation, case studies, presentations and end term report.

Purpose of lecture

The ability to generate and manage technological change is a major feature of competitiveness of firms. The course aims to teach basic concepts related to technology strategy. Technological opportunities and strategies are heavily influenced by the characteristics of technology paradigms and the direction of technological change, which influence corporate strategies as well as Sectoral Systems of Innovation. The course will identify and analyze major tasks facing firms in the generation and exploitation of technology. We will use some case studies to illustrate the concepts.
