Management of Technology

Mission Statement

The journal Production and Operations Management (POM) introduced the Management of Technology (MOT) Department in a special issue published in January-February 2008. Since that time, the department has published a large body of research to deepen our understanding of how innovations in science and technology have led to fundamental transformations in traditional intra and inter-organizational business practices resulting in the creation of new forms of competition, new business models, and accelerated globalization. In April 2017, the MOT Department published a second special issue. In addition to featuring important research currently underway, the 2017 special issue contains several invited papers that provide a multitude of suggestions for future multidisciplinary research in MOT. The department continues to build upon that momentum today.

The Management of Technology Department seeks contributions to the MOT domain that provide insights on how developments in science and technology drive organizations to rapidly design and implement business innovations leading to the successful launch of new products and services, new production and service creation processes, changes in the basic structure of extended supply chains, and changes in the delivery channels for consumer goods and services. We seek papers that assess and measure drivers of organizational performance including the environmental impact and the value of knowledge. Moreover, contributions to MOT are sought that recognize the importance of managing both internal resource capabilities (technology, workforce, processes and information) as well as external resource capabilities such as an organization's network of collaborators, suppliers, complementers, partners and customers.

While we seek papers that make fundamental contributions to operations management, we also recognize that MOT is multidisciplinary. For instance, MOT considers the behavioral as well as strategic implications of technology adoption and MOT considers how information technology impacts supply chain performance, the integration of product and process design, and innovation capabilities. MOT research is relevant to both existing organizations as well as entrepreneurial enterprises. Moreover, we seek papers that provide meaningful managerial insights in a variety of service and manufacturing industries (including aerospace and airlines, automotive, banking and insurance, biotechnology and pharmaceutical, consulting, defense, electronics, energy, healthcare, hospitality, media, retail, software development, telecommunications and transportation) as well as in government and non-profit organizations. Lastly, we welcome research papers that make significant contributions to the MOT domain from a variety of perspectives including empirical, experimental, and optimization methodologies.
