What is Utterback and Abernathy model?

Utterback and Abernathy first introduced the concept of ‘dominant design’ in 1975. They proposed that the emergence of a dominant design is a major milestone in an industry evolution and changed the way firms compete in an industry and thus, the type of organizations that succeed and prevail.

What are the three phases of innovation?

This process consists of three steps: insight, identifying the problem and creating a solution.

What is the relationship between dominant design and technology standards?

Setting technology standards is the route to market growth and to potentially influencing the performance of a whole industry. When a market accepts a particular technology as one that defines the specifications for products in the entire industry, a dominant design is set.

What is ferment era?

We propose that in an era of ferment, when a firm’s product design does not possess the features of the evolving dominant design, it faces a feature implementation gap defined as ‘the number of features of the evolving product dominant design that are absent from a firm’s product design’.

What are the models of innovation?

The Evolution of Innovation Framework Models

Model Generation Strengths
Technology Push First Simple Radical innovation
Market Pull Second Simple Incremental innovation
Coupling Third Simple Radical and incremental innovation Feedbacks between phases
Interactive Fourth Actor networking Parallel phases

What is an innovation framework?

An innovation framework is a global, scalable platform created to harness the creative talents of your employees while staying in alignment with your corporate strategy. It’s a strategic approach to innovation from the inside out that provides a way to act on new ideas.

What is S-curve for product?

The S-Curve Pattern of Innovation highlights the fact that as an industry, product, or business model evolves over time, the profits generated by it gradually rise until the maturity stage. These new products are often upgraded or related versions of products approaching the maturity stages of their S-Curves.

What is S-curve model?

The S curve refers to a chart that is used to describe, visualize, and predict the performance of a project or business overtime. More specifically, it is a logistic curve that plots the progress of a variable by relating it to another variable over time.

What was the Abernathy-Utterback model of innovation?

Abernathy and Utterback tried to break with this standard by creating a model where product innovation, process innovation, competitive environment and organizational structure were all interacting and closely linked together ( Abernathy, W.J. and Utterback, J.M. – Patterns of Innovation in Technology, Technology Review 1978 ).

How did Abernathy and Utterback describe the pattern?

In their pioneering work on this theme Abernathy and Utterback developed a model describing the pattern in terms of three distinct phases. Initially, under discontinuous conditions, there is what they term a ‘fluid phase’ during which there is high uncertainty along two dimensions:

What does Utterback mean by dominant design product?

In Utterback words “the dominant design product has features that competitors and innovators must adhere if they hope to command significant market share following” ( Utterback, J. M. – Mastering the Dynamics of Innovation, Harvard Business School 1994) .
