Technology Scouting and the Implications of Change

The ever-increasing pace of technological change is increasing both opportunity and risk for organizations across all industries.  The time to recognize and respond to these technological changes is shrinking.  Technology Scouting is becoming an essential capability in managing Enterprise Strategy, enabling firms to be better prepared for innovations, disruptions and opportunities.  A structured approach to identify, evaluate, monitor and develop or acquire emerging technologies will significantly improve an organizations ability to understand the implications of technology development and position themselves to both lessen the impact of disruptions and move quickly to execute upon new opportunities opened through technological change. This course will give an overview of Technology Scouting and discuss different approaches and processes to integrate technology scouting into an organizations’ overall strategic management framework.  Some of the key tools and methods that can be applied to technology scouting will be examined, allowing attendee’s to take practical steps to implementing or improving their approach to managing technological change.
