Teaching

Technology Strategy – MGT 6710.

This course is about technology and the challenge of creating strategies that allow firms to leverage technologies to create innovative products, profit from them, and sustain their competitive and technological advantages over time. We explore the existence and identification of technological opportunity, patterns of technological change, the evolution of marketplace, the influence of technical standards, technology commercialization, appropriability and intellectual property protection, and finally, the challenges of implementing a technology strategy. This course is useful to students interested in starting new technology companies, students planning to work for new technology companies in management or technical roles, and students interested in technology policy.
