Abstract

Abstract This paper explores why differences in cultural values should lead to different behaviors of new technology champions. It holds that the behaviors of champions who go about overcoming obstacles to technological innovation are culture-specific, and examines the relationship between the specific behaviors of technology champions and three cultural values: individualism/collectivism, power distance, and uncertainty avoidance/uncertainty acceptance.
