Who are you on the Innovation Adoption Life-cycle?
“Early Adopter” is a term coined from the work of Everett Rogers Diffusion of Innovations (2003) 5th ed. It is included in a breakdown of how the general public responds to the adoption of technological innovations. You will often see these terms broken across a bell curve and divide to represent the rate of adoption of the new technology innovation.
1. Innovators 2.5%
2. Early Adopters 13.5%
3. Early Majority 34%
4. Late Majority 34%
5. Laggards 16%
I guess I must admit that I am an “Early Adopter” how about you?
