This issue is compiled from papers presented at a prior Portland International Conference on Engineering and Technology Management. The papers deal with several aspects of managing technological innovation.
The first paper, by Wu Wei-wei, Liang Da-peng, Yu Bo, and Yang Ying examines strategic planning for technology management. The authors developed a model, which is based on the capability maturity model and fitness landscape theory.
The next three papers study behavioral elements which need to be considered carefully in managing technological innovations. The second paper, by Wan-Yu Chen, Calvin S. Weng and Hui-Ying Hsu studied entrepreneurship by applying the Chinese entrepreneur aptitude scale to Taiwanese youth. The third paper, by Bi-Fen Hsu, Wan-Yu Chen, Mei-Ling Wang and Yen-Yu Lin explores the relationship between supervisory support and work-family conflict. The fourth paper, by Chun-Te Lin, explores relationships in the workplace including the R&D department.
The final two papers present tools for evaluating technological innovations. Chen-Chun Lin, Ying-Hwa Tang, Joseph Z. Shyu, and Yi-Ming Li present a novel method of integrating multiple theories for forecasting technological innovations. Wen-Hsiang Lai, Pao-Long Chang, and Ying-Chyi Chou demonstrate the use of an enhanced multi-criteria decision model for evaluation of research and development projects.
