Then, the documents and studies of the " First to fifth development plans" with emphasis on technology development are evaluated based on concepts of two models and theoretical models. The collected data includes two categories of documents. Documents and reports that have dealt with the history of technology development in Iran after the Islamic Revolution and documents and studies that have evaluated and analyzed the development of technology in these periods. Thematic analysis technique was used to achieve the focal point and central categories of technology development activities. Attempts were made to encode the collected documents, and finally a theoretical model of technology development programs was drawn during the first to fifth programs. Findings indicate that planners and policy makers pay attention to the adoption of some types of technologies in each of the first to fifth periods of development, which are expressed in the relevant tables. The innovation of the present study is in drawing the technology development model during the development programs using the qualitative method of content analysis, which explains the strengths and weaknesses of the programs.
