The Technological Segment

The technological segment is basically the same for general strategic planning and strategic planning for project management. Included in this segment we have:

• Offensive technology: Do we have the skill to develop new products and, if so, does the methodology account for technical risk taking in this regard?

• Defensive technology: How quickly and effectively can we defend our existing products through enhancements? Does our methodology allow for short cuts for enhancement projects?

• Purchasing of technology: Does our company allow us to purchase technology (hardware, software, etc.) to improve our management processes?

• Technology gap: Does a technology gap exist between us and our competitors? Does the methodology allow for risk-taking to close the gap?

• The freedom to innovate: Is the methodology rigidly structured or does it allow some degree of freedom for creativity?
