5(a) is the S-curve for a system, while Fig. 5(b) is a typical plot, “number of inventions as a function of time,” for this system. It has two peaks. The first peak occurs around the beginning of wide implementation of the new system. The second peak occurs at the end of the system’s “natural life”; it relates to efforts (usually futile in the long run) to extend the system’s verve to compete with the new evolving system. Although most of inventions advance the state-of-the-art, contribution of each individual invention can vary in a very broad range.

The sales department was not ready for a radical departure. All existing breakers looked and performed the same. The salesman got orders by giving the best whiskey as a present. Confronted with a new technology that would require a change in their selling mode, the sales organization simply dug in its heels. So technological innovation was rendered ineffective by failure to make the necessary collateral innovation in the enterprise process of sales and marketing. LESSONS LEARNED If Watt had not obtained help on supply chain and enterprise infrastructure, we would never have heard of his great new technology.

Our personal experiences, along with numerous historical accounts of how new products and technologies came into being, suggest quite the opposite—inventions are fruits of brilliant minds that work in concealed ways. Therefore, inventions cannot be predicted, and the process of inventing cannot be controlled. ” Contrary to this conventional perception, Altshuller stated that although evolution of technological systems takes apparently haphazard steps, in the long term, there are universal directions along which all the systems evolve.
