The diffusion of management techniques is as difficult as the diffusion of technologies. This paper aims to find out how technology management is perceived and utilized in Turkish firms. The research is based on a survey that consists of 89 company responses out of the biggest 500 firms in the Turkish industry. The investigation consists of 1) the degree of diffusion in terms of technology management activities such as technology planning as well as 2) the techniques and tools used in technology management such as simulation. The literature review indicates 11 technology management activities ranging from strategy to utilization and 36 technology management techniques / tools. The results show that Turkish managers try to utilize technologies rather than creating them and they use 11 techniques more often than others and many important tools such as technology life cycle are not diffused yet. The paper ends with a discussion of findings.
