This workshop aims to provide the academic community and professionals from any sector, especially the power sector, with an in-depth and up-to-date view of technology capacity management. In a world where technology is advancing by leaps and bounds, it is imperative that the power generation industry not only keeps up with, but also anticipates and adapts to future trends. Efficient management of technological capabilities can be the determining factor in achieving this.
The methodology presented is based on a three-dimensional approach to generate technological capabilities that combine a vision from technological capabilities focused on knowledge, technological capabilities focused on resources and technological capabilities focused on stakeholder networks. This is how, through the technological inventory, the current state and technological needs of the organization are sought to be known. The technology strategy defines the direction and purpose of these capabilities, ensuring that they are aligned with the organization's overall objectives. Once the strategy has been defined, the search for technological capabilities is responsible for identifying and acquiring the necessary skills, tools, and technologies.
However, all technology acquisitions carry risks. It is therefore essential to understand the acquired technology risk to assess and, where possible, mitigate it.
Once capabilities have been integrated, managing them becomes a fundamental task to maintain and upgrade them. Finally, the workshop delves into the maximization of technological capabilities, exploring how to optimize and expand these capabilities to ensure a sustainable competitive advantage over time.
The methodology presented offers not only a structure and framework, but also a philosophy that places knowledge, resources, and networks as the fundamental pillars of technology capability management. Through this workshop, it is hoped that participants will not only understand these concepts, but also be able to apply them practically in their respective fields and organizations.
