MIT Sloan School
15.912 -- Fall 2000
This course provides a strategy framework -- drawing upon the economics of technical change -- for
high-technology businesses. The emphasis throughout is on the development and application of
conceptual models which clarify the interactions between competition, patterns of technological and
market change, and the structure and development of internal firm capabilities.
