  Vecta in Technology
  Are you a technology fanatic, conservative, sceptic, or Luddite? Which should you be in which situation?

Can you ever afford to "bet the company" on an emerging technology that may boost your company, and you, to a major competitive advantage?

Can you afford to let a competitor apply the technology before you? Would you get most value by moving first - or later?

Who are the key people behind successful technology investments?

Could adoption of an emerging technology transform one of your suppliers, collaborators or even customers into a competitor?

Where will that technology emerge? Should you be partnering in some way to minimise risks, reduce costs, and shorten time to market - and cash?

Are the finance, marketing, operations and technology resources in place to ensure that an emerging technology will win through? Is there a big enough unfulfilled market need?

Some technology areas are still evolving rapidly with the potential to create opportunities for new or agile competitors to grow and profit from the refined value chain.

Which of these technology areas is still generating emerging technology? Which are still over-hyped? Which are now under-valued? Which are maturing? Which are going nowhere? Which threatens to kill an existing line of your business? Which promises to create a new $multiB market for someone? Could it be you?
