Abstract : The article reviews the present state of technology management in our liberalised environment. For our industries, technology management is mainly technology import and for our scientists it is management of Research and Development. The changes introduced in technology management by the intense competitive environment are discussed and the effects of the broadened scope for technology management for sustained competitiveness are brought out. Technology fusion and core competence as part of the strategic framework follow as a response to the environment. The Indian scenario is now discussed in the light of these developments. The paper concludes that all parties involved in technology management namely government industries and the scientists/technologists have to recognise these changes and act in a concerted manner for the nation to gain and sustain the competitive edge.
