Abstract: Technology Intelligence (TI) is a process which has been introduced to improve the performance of technology development along with creativity by identifying potential options of new technologies as well to reduce the probability of failure due to the technological discontinuities. Technology planning is an integral part of a companys macro trading plan which is essential at both macro and micro levels of companys strategic activity. This study has tried to identify the effects of TI on the technology planning due to the intertwining of these concepts. Given that railway is as one of the fundamental indicators of economic growth, this research has studied these concepts in one of the important passenger subsets of this industry, i.e., technical assistant for the RAJA rail transportation company. Data are collected by census method and then are analyzed by using inferential methods including Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, pearson correlation coefficient and regression analysis. Results showed that TI has a positive and significant effect on the technological planning.
