In this respect Technology Scouting is a method that can lower the time lag between the advance in technology and its detection by the Technology Intelligence associated with methods such as patent or publication analysis. Furthermore in an environment of increasing technological complexity and of globalization of R&D the successful identification and usage of external sources of knowledge becomes increasingly important. In the sourcing of technology the technology scouts can also play an important role in identifying valuable sources and by facilitation the sourcing.
