In the not-so-distant past, the field of strategic management was prolific in proposing tools and methods to help industrial practitioners and decision-makers structure the strategic decisions of companies, particularly in the technological field. Since Henry Mintzberg’s criticism of strategic planning as an oxymoron incapable of accounting for the complexity and unpredictability of real business environments, researchers in this area have turned to less pragmatic and less propositional research agendas. Despite this, businesses and practitioners continue to use strategic management tools developed in the “pre-Mintzberg” era. However, these tools do not take stock of recent advances and recent phenomena in the field of technology and innovation management, such as open innovation and ecosystems, which are not systematically taken into account through these tools. This seminar aims to present some recent efforts to bridge this gap between the theory and practice of strategic technology management.
