  Disquisition on Strategy of Technology
Strategy of Technology was written in the 60's and published in 1970.
Strategy of Technology was very much a book for the Seventy Years War (or Cold War if you like); although the principles remain true and important, all the examples are pretty well drawn from that conflict and specifics are directed to weaknesses in the nomenklatura system that governed the USSR in those times.
Strategy of Technology introduced the notion of a strategy of "assured survival" in contrast to "assured destruction" and Assured Survival is the title of one chapter of that book.

 The Strategy of Technology - Chapter 4
Technology is made the driving force, dictating to strategy; and strategy is conceived of as the employment of systems already created by the technologists, that is, strategy is confined to operational decisions.
Technology will have two distinct impacts on military systems: it will identify new uses for our own systems and suggest new capabilities that would be desirable for the force; it will also postulate potentially new enemy capabilities against our force, generating new requirements for ourselves and changing the predicted outcome of future battles.
First, the relationship between tactics and strategy is complex; the failure of the British to understand the tactical value of the tank led to failure to provide strategy for armored employment in World War I and thus prolonged that conflict.

 Technology and Strategy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Technology, according to The American Heritage Dictionary, is "the body of knowledge available to civilization that is of use in fashioning implements, practicing manual arts and skills, and extracting or collecting materials." It is society's way of providing its members with those things they need or desire.
From this rough definition, it can be seen that the concepts of technology and society are closely related, even though society consists of people and their laws and technology consists of devices and methods.
Strategy, on the other hand, is a broad term that looks beyond the battlefield to the theater of operations and forward to relative national means and ends.

The role of price in the overall corporate strategy is important and requires astute judgment, because once an image of a company has been established it takes a very long time to change it, if it is inappropriate.
Defined thus, an expression of this idea is in the combination of information systems and pricing strategies to allocate the "right" capacity to the "right" customer at the "right" time, wherein the term "right" implies achieving both the most revenue possible for an enterprise while also delivering the greatest value or usefulness to the customer.
As regards the pricing technology itself, the next logical step for the future entails making these systems more flexible so that they can be customized with ease, eventually leading to greater user acceptance.
