Technology Stage Gate (TSG)

A process for managing the technology development efforts when there is high uncertainty and risk. The process brings a structured methodology for managing new technology development without thwarting the creativity needed in this early stage of product development. It is specifically intended to manage high-risk technology development projects when there is uncertainty and risk that the technology discovery may never occur and therefore the ultimate desired product characteristics might never be achieved. (See Chapter 11 in The PDMA ToolBook 1.)
