Innovation and commercialization are major drivers of technology-related businesses and the economy. Efficiency and effectiveness in terms of the development and commercialization of new products and services are in turn driven by the construction and implementation of a strategic plan. Today’s fast-changing “hypervelocity” technologies and markets pose a particular challenge. Industry boundaries become blurred, technologies evolve, undergo fusion, and markets change in often chaotic fashions so that prediction of the future in order to plan becomes problematic.
