The Case Series in Management of Technology, No. 1.: Reson: Strategy, R&D and the Management of Technology
Abstract: This case is the first in a series of company cases on
strategy, organization and management of technology headed by Jens FrÝslev
Christensen at Department of Industrial Economics and Strategy, Copenhagen
Business School. The objective of these cases is twofold: to generate
empirical inputs from business practice to both ongoing research and
case-teaching exercises within the field of Management of Technology. This
case study does not pretend to give a full and final account of Reson A/S.
The study provides a broad outline of Resonís historical development,
industrial and competitive context, management, strategy and organization,
with special attention to R&D and management of technology. The case builds
on interviews with managers at Reson (a chronological list of interviews
and interviewees can be found in appendix 1), internal reports and company
material. We would like to extend our warmest thanks to R&D manager Steen
Bruun and managing director Claus Steenstrup who have made decisive
contributions to this case. Support from CISTEMA (Center for
Inter-disciplinary Studies in Technology Management), DRUID (Danish
Research Unit for Industrial Dynamics), and Department of Industrial
Economics and Strategy is gratefully acknowledged.
