Organizations that are integrated into industries with intensive technologies are more likely to strongly emphasize innovation efforts, flexibility, and growth orientation than firms in industries with long‐linked technologies.
Management's challenge is to continually try to focalize on organizations' growth, adapting technological capabilities to be in dynamic alignment with the chosen growth dimensions and to take into account business vision and environmental opportunities.
Successful organizations will be differentiated by their ability to visualize the logic growth dimensions and to leverage technological advances to create an appropriate organizational arrangement to support a competitive growth. The future of technological innovation and advanced manufacturing processes depends on continued investment in cutting‐edge research and development, finding new market segments, and a highly qualified workforce.
