Roger’s Diffusion of Innovations
According to Everett Roger,
the origins of the diffusion of innovations theory are very various.
He claims that there are four main elements that influence the spread of a new idea:
In blue, groups of consumers cross the market share,

• Moore introduced what he called "the
chasm” to Roger’s concept.
• Moore noticed that Roger’s innovators and

• This is the area that Moore calls the
