Amador Segundo Alburquenque Morales, Dr. Julio González Candia

Technology management is responsible for establishing activities and knowledge capable of generating value. The application of efficient technological management models has demonstrated sufficient capacity to be a factor of economic and human development. This research covers the design and validation of research, development and innovation management system for the flavor and fragrances industry. The proposed system is the result of a qualitative analysis of factors related to R&D+i and a quantitative analysis of a Matrix Impact Cross-Reference Multiplication Applied to a Classification (MICMAC® method) of 38 isolated variables of the state of the art to develop technology management systems. 12 variables of high influence and dependence have been isolated and interrelated as key elements of the proposed management system. The study also offers a validated tool; by methodological experts, disciplinary experts in technology management and experts of the industry, to quantify the degree of implementation of the R&D+i management system.
