A core challenge in technology-oriented innovation is the correct focus of innovation implementation in highly complex environments, including a fragmented value chain. This section presents a method that helps innovation departments steer innovation implementation in order to decrease timeto- market and improve the quality and alignment of the technology artifacts developed.
