MODULE TWO: THE DIFFUSION OF INNOVATIONS ADOPTER FRAMEWORK

 Adaptation to innovation (a change) is segmented in a bell curve distribution.

The segments related to openness to adaptation by adopters are innovators (2.5%), early adopters (13.5%), early majority (34%), late majority (34%), and laggards (16%).

This segmentation is found in every culture, every cultural group, every institution, religion, congregation, interest group, etc. 100 innovators will likewise segment into the same percentages based on their excitement about an innovation. Each segment has common characteristics regardless of culture, context or the issue.

Culture is never monolithic; individuals are always diverse in some way.

Therefore, every appointment to a congregation is to some degree a cross cultural appointment.

Diversity with regard to any issue is likewise segmented in a bell curve distribution.
