Why Read This Report

Concepts from academic psychology can be wedded to Forrester's Technographics segmentation to demonstrate how information, novelty, and status drive early adoption. Consumers motivated by career, family, and entertainment experience these drives differently; understanding these differences will allow product strategists to more effectively design, market, and sell new consumer products.
