Abstract

Nowadays with progress of science and technology, enhancing the entrance of technology in market and competing of the market, the essential strategy of preservation and perfection of a small and medium enterprise is paying attention to R&D . Thus taking use of the most modern strategy in technology management will be a great assistance to these kinds of enterprises. In this article we have decided to demonstrate that how we can achieve the more active competition in the market of small and medium enterprise by making a change in the structure of R&D and mature it to RTD and obtain a major share of the technological products. This arrangement, considered to a case study and then its consequences are analyzed.

Abstract

Nowadays with progress of science and technology, enhancing the entrance of technology in market and competing of the market, the essential strategy of preservation and perfection of a small and medium enterprise is paying attention to R&D[3]. Thus taking use of the most modern strategy in technology management will be a great assistance to these kinds of enterprises. In this article we have decided to demonstrate that how we can achieve the more active competition in the market of small and medium enterprise by making a change in the structure of R&D and mature it to RTD and obtain a major share of the technological products.

ABSTRACT

The author believes that developing countries (DC), in particular Iran, need to urgently develop a culturally appropriate national strategy if they wish information technology (IT) to have a positive impact on their overall socio-economic development. While countries like Singapore claim to have very successful national strategies, the long-term impact on the country’s social development may have been over looked. Left unchecked the technological marketplace will impose a hard-to-reverse negative role on small countries like Iran. This will make it increasingly difficult for Iran to decide its is own long-term preferences for social and economic development. Put bluntly, these countries need to decide what they want from the global technology marketplace and then work out how they are going to achieve it. It is believed that hard technological determinism can only be countered by very real and well thought out national strategies. The paper argues that the national IT strategy will need to address the issues of resistance to change due to cultural, personal and infrastructure factors, be very culturally sensitive and given the rate change of the technology, will need to be constructed as an evolving, and learning system. The first stage in the development of such a system is to design an appropriate forum for discussion, and a well-constituted and ongoing

Abstract

 

This paper develops an endogenous growth model where a Less Developed Countries (LDCs) through Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and licensing. The model assumes that knowledge of DCs spills over to the LDC from licensing but not from FDI. It is found that the LDC relies on either FDI or licensing the decentralized equilibrium. However, due to knowledge spillovers from licensing encouraging licensing and regulation FDI will improve the welfare of a LDC, if his population size or its capacity to absorb knowledge of DCs is sufficiently large.

Abstract
A  product innovation is a subclass that has received less attention in terms of definitions. This paper aims to provide coherence to confusion of concepts. The purpose of this conceptual paper is to propose a new framework that defines product innovation from a single firm’s viewpoint. Other. Firms are not ever-patient and a product that does not become successful in a specified timeframe will be terminated or temporarily pulled out from market. Actual period of time for this decision may differ significantly depending on an underlying industry. The definition of success is the most troublesome part in our framework. Objective measurement of success is challenging. Therefore, the framework is formulated from a firm-centric viewpoint. In that sense, we postulate that success is defined by a respective firm in advance (prior launch) based on their internal goals and objectives. One of the key premises behind our framework is that innovations can be claimed and justified only retrospectively. As a result, this paper hopefully gives readers - managers and academics alike, a new mindset to better outline products into meaningful categories. In addition, if applied correctly the framework can limit the amount of products that are declares as innovations and thus prevent dilution of a word innovation – the truth is that not every player can be a winner and every product just can not turn out to be an innovation.
Keywords: Product innovation, conceptual framework.

  Abstract

 

Technology transfer has become a hot topic in business, industry, nongovernmental organizations, governments, and academia in the past everal years (Baker, David, & Soucy, 1995; Johnson, Gatz, & Hicks, 1997). With an increase in the speed of technology transfer, especially from the West to the developing world, issues of technology transfer demand special attention. There is a need to develop a universally accepted view and definition of technology transfer by integrating the various models. Such an integrated model would include sociocultural, economic, and political factors pertinent to the adoption and diffusion process. This draws upon the existing definitions, views, and models of technology transfer to provide a conceptual model of international technology transfer that encompasses sociocultural, economic, and political factors that bear upon the adoption and diffusion of technology.
