Lodestar Publishes New White Paper: 10 Reasons Why Smart Companies Invest in Formal Technology Scouting

The Lodestar White Paper Series™ has just been expanded with the addition of 10 Reasons Why Smart Companies Invest in Formal Technology Scouting.

The paper explores the many strategic reasons, both offensive and defensive, that more and more companies are investing in more formal and sophisticated technology scouting programs

Nelson commented, “While technology scouting has been an important part of Lodestar’s research, business intelligence, and strategy consulting for over two decades, we have seen an exponential surge in scouting activity and the creation of more formal and sophisticated programs in recent years. This paper explores some of the trends and forces we see at work across our client organizations.”

“Technology scouting can be a force multiplier inside a company, and like a rising tide, lift all functional areas (boats), including sales, marketing, R&D, strategic planning, even customer care.”
