Michael C. Sekora: Technology-Based Planning, the Foundation of All Competitive Advantage

President, Quadrigy, Inc.

Sekora, who was the founder and director of Project Socrates, a U.S. intelligence community initiative under President Reagan, will posit that the shift from technology-based planning to economic-based planning has caused our nation to lose its ability to compete economically. Sekora contends that technology-based planning is the key to competitive advantage for any nation, region, public or private organization. In economic-based planning, the funds are being manipulated; in technology-based planning, the technology is being manipulated. Come learn what Sekora believes the nation must do to turn itself around and regain its competitive advantage.

    And I bet I would agree with a lot of what Mr. Sekora will say there. For a lesson in how public-private cooperation in technology development can be an effective contributor to national competitiveness, check out this article “The U.S. Could Learn from Germany’s High-Tech Manufacturing”:
