Technology Development and Normative Process Models
Paper in proceeding, 2010

The aim of this article is to contribute experience gained from developing, implementing and using a normative model for technology development based on the stage-gate model. A modified stage-gate model is proposed where the iterative and explorative nature of uncertain technology development is considered. An empirical contribution is made regarding the dialogue that took place in the study company in question when trying to balance the management need for rationality, structure and control vs. the need of the developers for exploration and experimentation.
