Technology Transfer: Maximizing The Effective Use
Mobil has undertaken a company-wide effort to improve its competitiveness by placing greater emphasis on transferring technology from its technical departments into its operating divisions. To accomplish this goal, a Technology Transfer Program was developed and implemented throughout Mobil's technical departments to provide the training and incentives to promote better technology transfer through improved interdepartmental communications. The program was based on actual case studies of successful technology transfer events within Mobil and a simple model of the technology transfer process. The program was packaged into a four-day workshop which has been given to over 500 personnel. As the emphasis on technology transfer has propagated through the organization, technology transfer to operating facilities in various parts of the company has improved substantially. The authors hope this article may stimulate others to consider how to utilize technology more effectively to enhance U.S. competitiveness in the changing global economy.
