Abstract: This article analyses and discusses the development and achievements of the corporate technology management (TM) field. Based on an extensive survey, it is found that Technology Management in its present form, has existed since the early 1980s, but its roots can be traced back to the early 1970s under such labels as Strategic Management, Engineering Management, Innovation Management, and R&D Management. It is argued that the field of TM has matured to such a degree as to entitle it to be classified as an independent subfield of corporate management.

Keywords: technology management theory; technology management tools; corporate management; strategy.
