This paper seeks to extend our understanding by developing a model relating technology to strategy. The model is a two-by-two frame based on the distinction between 'planned' vs 'emergent' strategy and 'latent' vs 'sensible' technology. The frame generates four distinct domains that we label 'development', 'capitalisation', 'creation' and 'cultivation'. The paper then considers the 'creation' quadrant through a case history of the stent industry. This case indicates that (a) new technologies lack the 'revolutionary' characteristic with which they are normally associated; (b) that the courthouse rather than the marketplace is an important if not primary domain where new technology firms compete; and (c) that new technology firms are much more aggressive when interacting with other new technology firms than they are with firms from the existing industry.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor and Francis (Routledge)||Journal:||Technology Analysis and Strategic Management||Volume:||21||Issue:||5||Start page:||587||End page:||598||Copyright (published version):||2009 Taylor and Francis||Keywords:||New technology; Strategy; Stent industry||DOI:||10.1080/09537320902969117||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
