Among others technology sourcing modes are: - alliance through technology collaboration, consortium, research joint venture,- acquisition through licensing, R&D sub contracting, technology purchasing. As a consequence academics and practitioners direct their attention toward two main questions: when is it necessary to develop a new technology and what is the best sourcing mode? Thus, this research studies the decision key factors of Iranian high technology companies in the field of technology sourcing. Internal and external variables are investigated including: internal scientific resources, past experience success, absorptive capacity, and, the concerned phase of the technology live cycle, the technological uncertainty.
