The following case illustration provides insight into some common difficulties facing diffusion campaigns. Compatibility is the degree to which an innovation is perceived as being consistent with the existing values, past experiences, and needs of potential adopters. As the first to adopt a new idea in their system, they cannot depend upon the Elements of Diffusion 23 subjective evaluations of the innovation from other members of their system. Discontinuance may occur because an individual becomes dissatisfied with an innovation, or because the innovation is replaced with an improved idea. Sowjetunion 12, Google Scholar Given that an innovation exists, communication must take place if the innovation is to spread beyond its inventor.

Floyd Shoemakerwas published innine years later. For example, an organization may decide to purchase word-processing equipment on the basis of a staff decision or by an official's authority decision; the individual office worker in the organization may have little or no say in the innovation-decision. These unnecessary intricate movements cause mental tension, typist fatique, and lead to more typographical errors. An innovation that is trialable represents less uncertainty to Diffusion of Innovations 16 the individual who is considering it for adoption, as it is possible to learn5.

The Los Molinos villagers call her a "sickly one. Murch Ed. Scurvy control provides an interesting historical case of how slowly an obviously beneficial innovation spread Mosteller, Bloembergen, E. Other innovations are more difficult or impossible to reinvent; for example, hybrid seed corn does not allow a farmer much freedom to re-invent, as the hybrid vigor is genetically locked into seed for the first generation in ways that are too complicated for a farmer to change. Information about innovations is often sought from near-peers, especially information about their subjective evaluations of the innovation.

Chapter 4 of the present book deals with this issue of where innovations come Bibliography on the diffusion of innovations. book, and how their origins affect their diffusion. The social embedding of the hardware aspects of technology are usually less visible than its machinery or equipment, and so we often think of technology mainly in hardware terms.

From the viewpoint of the public health agency, the local health worker, Nelida, had a simple task: to persuade the housewives of Los Molinas to add water boiling to their pattern of daily behavior.

In a decentralized diffusion system, such decisions are more widely shared by the clients and potential adopters; here, horizontal networks among the clients are the main mechanism through which innovations spread.

Unfortunately, this is very seldom the case. But the two women are different in one crucial respect: they live in different villages, one in Village A and one in Village B. She visited each of the selected families between fifteen and twenty-five times; eleven of these families now boil their water regularly.

Among the important research questions addressed by diffusion scholars are 1 how the earlier adopters differ from the later adopters of an innovation Chapter 72 how the perceived attributes of an innovation, such as its relative advantage, compatibility, etc.

Cahn, D. Research on actor-network theory ANT also identifies a significant overlap between the ANT concepts and the diffusion of innovation which examine the characteristics of innovation and its context among various interested parties within a social system to assemble a network or system which implements innovation.

Further, the same innovation may be desirable for one adopter in one situation but undesirable for another potential adopter in a different situation. Diffusion researchers have been more oriented to the dependent variable of adoption a decision to use and implement a new ideathan to actual implementation itself or to studying the consequences of innovation.

Although it is not feasible for the village to install a sanitary water system, the incidence of typhoid and other waterborne diseases could be greatly reduced by boiling water before it is consumed.

B: Persuaded Adopter. Gupta, A. In a similar manner, we shall present a concise word-picture of each of the other four adopter categories in Chapter 7.
