Strategic management of technology in construction : a framework and case study
Hampson, Keith D. (1994) Strategic management of technology in construction : a framework and case study. In Proceedings of Strategic Management Educators' Conference 1994, Brisbane, Qld.
This case study analyzes a firm's technology strategy for its fit or match with the requirements of the industry environment in which it operates. Understanding the relationships between market characteristics and technology strategies can assist managers in making complex and difficult decisions regarding their use of technology to improve competitive performance. Using the technology strategy framework, managers can map their own capabilities for comparison with the more appropriate or superior approach to technology in that industry environment. Alternatively, firms seeking to transition from one industry niche or environment to another could identify and move to acquire the required capabilities. The dynamics of industry competition, both domestic and international, emphasize the need for improved management of the strategic fit between technical capabilities and industry environment.
