The Technology and Innovation Management Division of the Academy of Management was formed in 1987 to bring together scholars interested in innovation, research and development, and the management of technology-based organizations. The Division currently has around 3000 members, making it one of the larger Divisions within the Academy of Management.

Domain: The Technology and Innovation Management (TIM) Division encourages interdisciplinary scholarship and dialogue on the management of innovation and technological change from a variety of perspectives, including strategic, managerial, behavioral, and operational issues.  The problem domain includes the management of innovation processes, research and development, information technologies, e-commerce, and process technologies.  Participants in this broad academic endeavor come from a wide range of disciplines and draw on an extensive array of theoretical and research paradigms.   We enter this complex problem domain in the spirit of dialogue, debate, and deepened understanding.

Specific domain: Major topics include studies of the strategic management of technology; innovation processes; innovation diffusion and the development, implementation, and use of technologies; technology development trajectories; intellectual capital;  organizational processes by which technically-oriented activities are integrated into organizations; product development strategies; technical project management; behaviors and characteristics of technical professionals; technological forecasting and policies; information technology; impacts of new technologies on organizational forms and electronic commerce.
