Why you should read Mastering the Hype Cycle
Everybody’s talking about it – the next best thing that’s going to reorder industries, catapult early adopters to the top and make millions for those on the ground floor. How do you know when to hop on the innovation bandwagon or stay on the sidelines? You can’t rely on your gut to choose which innovation presents a genuine opportunity, but the well-considered “hype cycle” can make a difference. Technology researchers Jackie Fenn and Mark Raskino devised this model to help you determine which innovations to adopt, when to adopt them and how to integrate them into your business. This rubric takes you beyond the buzz to help you make well-reasoned, thoughtful choices. getAbstract suggests this useful manual to anyone making decisions about new products and services, technological breakthroughs, creative processes or bold ideas.
