  5. Assessing Technology Readiness and Maturity

    Audio Session: Wednesday, March 21, 2007 1:00pm

    Emerging technology-based projects are often plagued by cost overruns, schedule delays and performance problems. In most of these cases, technology maturity analysis hasn’t been properly conducted, and immature technologies are inserted into products and systems. In this slide presentation, Has Patel discussed current technology due diligence processes and their pitfalls and presented NASA’s developed technology maturity matrix, called Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs), now widely accepted by the Department of Defense. Patel also presented a technology maturity matrix which extends the TRLs, by incorporating technology life cycles, such as the technology hype and technology adoption. Finally, the presentation also included a methodology that allows an organization to select, insert and integrate emerging technologies throughout the lifecycle of a project. (36 pages)

  10. Open Innovation Networks: Creating and Managing an Ecosystem for Innovation Locked

    Research | Posted: 2008-07-04

    While a select group of leading companies have successfully adopted open innovation, demonstrating impressive results, many others are moving slowly or stumbling along the way. Many companies equate open innovation with technology scouting. While scouting remains important, open innovation is much broader incorporating partnerships and informal relationships with networks of external innovators. Fostering these networks is an ongoing process that requires a company to approach business in a fundamentally different way, both externally and internally. In this June 2008 presentation, Mike Docherty, CEO of Venture2, provides an introduction and framework for creating and managing a network of external innovators. This presentation provides case studies demonstrating successful open innovation networks, as well as a straightforward approach to planning, structuring and managing external innovation partnerships to drive internal growth. In this presentation Docherty discusses the importance of moving beyond a narrow focus on technology scouting; defining strategic intent and developing network charters; a framework for creating and managing networks of partners; and how to structure collaborative pilots to harvest opportunities for innovation.
