Abstract

This paper proposes a conceptual framework for a total systems view of technology management for companies and organizations, particularly those that are multinational. The concept of the 'Technology Cycle' is introduced within this framework, to clearly identify the basic elements of technology management. Also, a 'Technology Flow Process' is presented to view the broader picture of technology management in a company's strategic and tactical goals for competitiveness in domestic and world markets. The 'pros' and 'cons' of this systems approach are argued on the basis of 10 tenets in order to stimulate further intellectual inquiry in the topic.
