The core tasks include collecting and analyzing information, ensuring the transparency of decisions, technology forecasting and planning and promoting the internal communication on technological disruptions and opportunities.

Challenges in technology management:

  • Which upcoming technologies and related patents are game changers in my business?
  • How to identify, select, analyze, and disseminate a large scale of information on novel technologies and technological trends?
  • How can technology scouting be accelerated and streamlined so that employees find the right balance and manage their time effectively?
