Management of technology (MOT) is a field of study dedicated to the planning and ongoing assessment of technology in organizations, incorporating the innovation, development, and engineering processes into one discipline. Managing Technological Change: A Strategic Partnership Approach fills a critical void by presenting an integrative, strategic, and participative approach to technology management from a multi-industry perspective.

Key Features

Identifies the steps involved in successful technology planning, acquisition, development, implementation, and assessment
Presents an integrative framework that links aspects of systems theory, engineering design theory, and industrial relations theory to each of the aforementioned steps
Discusses the barriers to rational innovation processes, using illustrative examples from service, public, and manufacturing sector industries
Offers illustrative examples of best practice from multiple industries and cross-national perspectives, especially those involving strategic partnerships.

"Managing Technological Change is the first volume that addresses the importance of including workers and their unions in the strategy management of technological change. It also contributes to the literature on this subject by moving beyond manufacturing and into the service and education sectors. This book should be of interest to scholars, students, and practitioners alike."
