Facing the challenges in executing their goals Research and Technology Organizations (RTOs), have faced difficult accountability questions, and led to the need for the RTOs to enhance their strategic management to become effective, efficient and goal-directed organizations for innovation and technology development. Accordingly, the main issue of concern in the present study is the concept of strategy in the RTOs and the compatible strategic management model for the organizations. This study is based on sequential exploratory mixed method. In the first stage, grounded theory is used to clarify the concept of strategy in the RTOs and to develop a model for strategic management of technology development in RTOs based on semi structured interview with their managers and experts. Proposed model is based on dynamic capability view to strategic management and is a process model which includes 6 major themes: “scoping and determining the mission and vision”, “determining the technological knowledge goals of organization”, “balancing the exploration and exploitation”, “multi technological paths mapping”, “processes, resources and capabilities of RTOs” and “transferring the technological findings”. Afterwards, the proposed model have been tested by multiple case studies in the context of three RTOs which are correspond to Oil Industry and find some supporting evidence of its existence in them. We conclude with some final remarks and suggestions for future research questions.
