Abstract: Technology management is managing technological knowledge to sustain competitive edge in an uncertain and competitive business context. This paper developed a framework for analysing technology management issues by combining the knowledge management concepts and ecosystem theory concepts. Technology strategy can be conceptualised as a process of aligning knowledge search, knowledge envisioning, knowledge creation and knowledge evolution with a view to meeting changing customer needs, competitive threats and the future technology trajectory.
