    Observability is the perceived degree to which results of innovating are visible to others and is positively related to acceptance. A technological innovation is Hicks neutralfollowing John Hicksif a change in technology does not change the ratio of capital 's marginal product to labour's marginal product for a given capital-to-labour ratio. Flowing — Stocks to flows, ownership to use. Many new technologies start by offering low performance but later threaten old technologies by improving at a much faster rate. Crazy, impossible things actually happen all the time.

    But over the past five hundred years that pace has consistently increased. Consider the book as well. What Technology Wants by Kevin Kelly. New product development and major investments in research depend upon a proper understanding of technological evolution in general and of the S-shaped curve in particular. Using a trans-disciplinary approach, it explores three distinct themes: Markets and Organizations; Evolutionary Theory and Technological Change; and Strategy, Capabilities, and Knowledge Management.

    Time[ edit ] Time enters into the acceptance process in many ways. Accessing — The availability of anything, atoms or bits, immediately without owning. These forces will shape our future and we are only at the beginning. And not only do we know that, we know what God is accomplishing in history.
