ABOUT BROCK HINZMANN
Brock Hinzmann is a technology
navigator at SRI Consulting Business Intelligence, Inc. (SRIC-BI).
He has spent over 21 years helping SRI's clients through the evolution
of the technology and processes for business intelligence, from
the time SRI introduced its process to scan for future discontinuities
to his present role in customizing technology maps on topics that
range from fuel cells to rapid manufacturing to a recent draft on
biometrics. In 1984, he co-designed and was the first analyst for
TechMonitoring, covering many advanced materials topics, such as
advanced structural ceramics, metal matrix composites, engineering
polymers, and smart materials, as well as many energy and processing
technologies that use such materials. His coverage of rapid prototyping
led to exploration of such issues as product design and development
and work with SRI's trademarked Values and Lifestyles Program and
the consumer demand side of technology road mapping. Two years ago,
after serving as director of TechMonitoring for six years, he created
the position of Technology Navigator to help SRI clients design
custom technology maps and to help redesign TechMonitoring into
its new form, Explorer. Mr. Hinzmann has an MBA in international
business from San Francisco State University and a BA in International
Studies from Willamette University (Salem, Oregon). He is a member
of ASM International (materials society), Society of Manufacturing
Engineers (founding board of advisors to SME/Rapid Prototyping Association),
and Industrial Designers Society of America.
