Nontechnical (non*tek*ni*cal) adj. – relating to or not involving technology; without specialized knowledge or technical terms: a nontechnical procedure; an easy-to-understand explanation. Nontechnical can also refer to a person’s background or abilities: a nontechnical speaker; a nontechnical writer.

While a wooden canoe and a stone knife are both forms of technology, blowing wind is not because it is a natural phenomenon rather than a human-made invention. To be considered a form of technology, an object or activity must be both man-made and useful in some way to improve people’s lives. For example, a new production technique can increase productivity, but it can’t do so on its own—the introduction of organisational changes is needed as well.
