This course will focus on key concepts, models, and methods that
will enable students to effectively manage the development and utilization of
technologies. The goal is to develop an awareness of the range, scope, and
complexity of the phenomena, issues, and problems related to economics,
management of technology and technological innovations. The course will mainly
focus on the micro issues but it will extend the discussion to cover macro issues of
technology management by studying how industries and firms are transformed by
new technologies, how new industries are formed, and what factors affect the
technology’s performance. In other words, a systems perspective will be used to
develop insights into the conditions under which structural arrangements and
systems are likely to facilitate technological development. In short, students will
develop a better understanding of the complex issues surrounding the managerial
tasks with respect to technology.
