Assessing Technology
Readiness and Maturity –
A Step-by-Step Process

Live Audio-Session with
Has Patel
Founder and President
Noted expert on emerging technology insertion, enterprise architectures, and open innovation concepts

Is your company seeking to accelerate development of technology-based projects? To reduce the risk of using new and uncertain technologies – especially those acquired from external sources?

Emerging technology-based projects are often set back by cost overruns, schedule delays and performance problems. In most of these cases, technology maturity analysis hasn’t been properly conducted, and immature technologies are inserted into products and systems. This need not happen!

To make sure your technology-based products aren’t sidelined by this mistake, attend Management Roundtable’s exclusive 90-minute audio-session Assessing Technology Readiness and Maturity – A Step-by-Step Process, on March 21, 2007.
Has Patel – who has has over twenty-five years experience in product management, business development and systems architecture - will discuss:

  • Current technology due diligence processes and their pitfalls

  • NASA’s developed technology maturity matrix, called Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs), now widely accepted by the Department of Defense (DoD)

  • A technology maturity matrix which extends the TRLs, by incorporating technology life cycles, such as the technology hype and technology adoption.

  • A methodology which allows an organization to select, insert and integrate emerging technologies throughout the lifecycle of a project: TechIP (Technology Insertion Plan)

In addition to providing you with recommended guidelines and methods, Has will answer your specific questions.

This session is recommended for CTOs and managers of technology development, product development, R&D and project teams. It will be especially valuable for those working on Open Innovation projects that require integration of externally-developed technologies.

This audio session will be a 90-minute presentation with frequent opportunities for questions & answers and includes:

  • Hardcopy of presentation slides sent to your office prior to session

  • Your questions answered by an expert

Invite your whole team to join you - the fee is the same as long as you are on one line, just put it on speakerphone!
