This article documents more than 20 technology adoption models that the author has encountered over his 45+ year career …some models that he didn’t realize he knew about ;-).  Here they there are, in no particular order.

NOTE: Each model progresses from left-to-right along an unspecified timeline.  The implication is that it is possible to superimpose two or more models on top of each other for deeper understanding and for creating more tangible, more illustrative, depictions of your corporate, product, and project strategies.

An example is: Model 10. Technology Adoption Lifecycle illuminated by the Gartner Hype Cycle.
