In 1998, APL's Strategic Planning Initiative resulted in a new Laboratory-wide strategic plan. A Technology Transfer Planning Team, formed to propose a course of action to aggressively pursue technology transfer, reported its findings in the APL Technology Transfer Summary Report. The Summary Report, with its six identified goals -- Empower the Process, In Reach, Technology Push, Market Pull, Manage Conflict, and Experiment -- is the backbone of the strategic plan for APL's Office of Technology Transfer (OTT). Primary and secondary quantitative metrics as well as qualitative metrics, including insight into technology competitiveness, are used to measure APL's progress in its technology transfer efforts.
A summary of the Technology Transfer Strategic Plan is available in PDF form for download and review.
