About this book

This textbook explains Technology Roadmap**, in both its development and practice, and illustrates the underlying theory of, and empirical evidence for, technologic evolution over time afforded by this strategy. The book contains a rich set of examples and practical exercises from a wide array of domains in applied science and engineering such as transportation, energy, communications, and medicine. Professor de Weck gives a complete review of the principles, methods, and tools of technology management for organizations and technologically-enabled systems, including technology scouting, roadmap**, strategic planning, R&D project execution, intellectual property management, knowledge management, partnering and acquisition, technology transfer, innovation management, and financial technology valuation. Special topics also covered include Moore’s law, S-curves, the singularity and fundamental limits to technology. Ideal for university courses in engineering, management, and business programs, as well as self-study or online learning for professionals in a range of industries, readers of this book will learn how to develop and deploy comprehensive technology roadmaps and R&D portfolios on diverse topics of their choice.

  • Introduces a unique framework, Advanced Technology Roadmap Architecture (ATRA), for develo** quantitative technology roadmaps and competitive R&D portfolios through a lucid and rigorous step-by-step approach;
  • Elucidates the ATRA framework through analysis which was validated on an actual $1 billion R&D portfolio at Airbus, leveraging a pedagogy significantly beyond typical university textbooks and problem sets;
  • Reinforces concepts with in-depth case studies, practical exercises, examples, and thought experiments interwoven throughout the text;
  • Maximizes reader competence on how to explicitly link strategy, finance, and technology.
