DJ,

Thanks for sharing this chart (I got to it from your Twitter feed). I agree it does a good job of showing who the people are at each phase as it relates to their learning styles. I find too often we group people into buckets without understanding who they are just assuming mid to late adopters are just the tough ones to deal with or convince. I have found in trying new things at Saddleback that it does seem to follow a process (at least for me) similar to Rogers 5 steps: There is the idea that is then talked about with others and massaged based on feedback and a level of getting our hands around it so that it can be talked about and "owned" by the team (attitude). Then the decision to implement happens and we usually then evaluate if it worked or not and then tweak or abandon depending on feedback/results. Thanks for sharing another way of putting this into words. Say hi to Stephen Shields for me!

Thanks for your posting DJ! As usual, your input is greatly appreciated.

I really appreciate the note about the 3 factors that can accelerate the development and spread of ideas.

I know from experience (and some reading) that environments also play a role to some extent. For example, in relation to a physical organization or company, the web environment does appear to further accelerate development due to its accessibility and ease of multiplication.

I would be interested in hearing from others as to how they are maximizing the web to develop and implement ideas. It appears that individuals and small groups can really influence the masses at a pace unheard of prior to the creation of the internet.

Hi,
The early adopters are called Laggards. The Social sciences have studied this research and have crafted graphical illustrations to it. The details you have shared adds more info to what I have learned from my tutor. Thanks
