implementing new technologies in traditional mechanical products
may be important to strategic decision-making with far reaching
consequences for companies. New technology demands new competence.
The new competence can come from outside or within the company.
What are the differences between an initiative coming outside or
within the company? In this study, two Swedish companies that
initiated new technology in their traditional mechanical products
have been chosen. The initiative to the new technology came in the
-outside-initiative- company from a consulting group.
In the -within-initiative- company the initiative came
from engineers at the company. This paper compares the attributes
of an agile organization in these two companies.
