“An excellent and well organized resource for people wanting to understand the complexities of technology management. Because the book is structured around a framework and offers a range of tools and techniques, it is also essential for those already working in technology management who want to ensure they follow a structured approach to decision making. I was impressed by the comprehensive coverage of key definitions and concepts and the application of these concepts to case examples.” —Jenny Darroch, Author of Marketing Through Turbulent Times and Professor of Marketing at Drucker Graduate School of Management, USA
