EXPLORING THE DISCONNECT BETWEEN THE BODIES OF LITERATURE PERTAINING TO SOCIO-TECHNICAL TRANSITIONS AND TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT (PART 2): A LINKAGE ANALYSIS
Keywords:Technology management, socio-technical transitions, linkage analysis
The importance and value of integrating the concepts of technology management with that in the socio-technical transitions literature has been highlighted in the literature. However, a disconnect still exists between these two bodies of literature. Therefore, this series of two papers investigates this disconnect from two perspectives. Part 1 investigates the disconnect by means of a bibliometric analysis that highlights the limited overlap and integration between technology management and socio-technical transitions. This paper, Part 2, enriches the investigation with a systematic and in-depth exploration of the literature bases used by the respective bodies of literature to gain additional insights into the level of integration (or the lack of it) between the socio-technical transitions literature and that on technology management. Similar to Part 1, this paper also finds that, even though these two fields are not integrated from a conceptual or theoretical perspective, it is evident that, to some extent, they share scholarly roots.
