The field of strategic technology management is converging out of several formerly distinct fields. Where once there were separate fields of strategic management, technology strategy and technology management, we are increasingly seeing an integrated perspective drawing from all three of these bodies of knowledge. This survey describes the emerging portfolio area of strategic technology management. The foundations of the field in terms of strategy, technology and management are briefly defined. Three useful perspectives from technology strategy, technology management and strategic management are described. The survey provides recommendations for practitioners drawn from the literature. A taxonomy of the subfields of the literature is provided. This survey then concludes with a synthesis, unanswered questions, and then a program of future research.
