  • An example of a barrier that slow or stop the spread of an innovation is: a. A lack of infrastructure to support a new technology.

    Innovation can be defined as the creation of a new product of any category such as automobile, building, phones, electronics, etc., which generates revenue (money) for the innovators or manufacturers when it is purchased by the end users (consumers).

    Diffusion of innovation refers to a process through which a new idea, new product or new technology is adopted or not adopted by the target audience (consumers). Thus, the diffusion of innovation explains how, why, and at what rate a new idea, new product or new technology spread across a market.

    However, a diffusion process would encounter barriers that inhibit or stop the spread of an innovation when there is a lack of suitable infrastructure to support a new technology.
