Technology analysis and foresight, innovation management and strategic planning are fields of activity with wide-ranging demands. Different methods and tools are used for the various different tasks of our CTF, TIP and WZA business units. Here, we will primarily present those methods with a quantitative or discursive and participatory focus.
Our tools and methods portfolio also includes other qualitative approaches, including creative methods, moderation techniques and knowledge management. We are also continuously looking for new, innovative approaches and tool testing. Methodological critique and development take place both internally and with external partners.
The interplay of methods in the context of technology analyses and foresight is described in more detail in relation to the aspects of technology analyses, technology monitoring and technology radar.
