Early adopters tend to be more specialized and profitable.
Frequently, in order to measure competitiveness in companies, it is assessed how advanced or lagged they are in terms of technology adoption. However, many companies do not know what their true position in this model is, or what they can do to evolve and become more innovative organizations.
If we take the technology adoption model, most organizations, and their employees, fall into one of these categories: "early majority", an important segment of the population that adopts innovative technology after a significant period of time, or "Late majority", which only adopts a new technology after the majority of the population has tried it.
There is no single formula or definition of adoption and adaptation of the technology that applies to all. On the one hand, this is because companies and their employees are rarely static agents; they tend to move forward and backward along the technology adoption curve. On the other hand, within the same organizations there are some areas that are more innovative than others, but also the areas and teams are made up of members who show greater openness to innovation and early adoption of technology and other members that are not. This is a key and complex aspect that each organization must take into account when analyzing and determining the life cycle of its technological adoption.
