dc.description.abstractAccording to Burgleman and Maidique (1998) the ability to undertake technology transfer is a key capability for an organisation. It enables them to extend their product life cycles when older technologies mature. Technology transfer can enable 'technology followers' become 'technology leaders' (Forbes and Wield, 2000) making the company more competitive in the global marketplace and more capable of innovation.Published literature does not currently outline mechanisms for planning, managing and executing such a technology transfer. In particular there are no guidelines that deal with the logistical and operational issues that are encountered during this process. This paper seeks to address this deficit. It presents a model for technology transfer based on best practice and designed to overcome some of the problems outlined above. It incorporates a set of tools for managers and decision makers to use to organise successful transfer of technology from one location to another.en_US
