18.2.2 Compatibility An innovation that is compatible with the experiences, values and needs of its potential buyers will be adopted more rapidly than one that isn't compatible. For example mobile phones have spread rapidly because they are compatible with social and cultural trends towards faster communications, increased personal mobility and the desirability of high-tech gadgets. However the car seat belt, patented in 1903, wasn't adopted on any significant scale until the 1970s (Author(s):

This model suggests that meaningful transformation requires changes in the worker-worker, worker-customer, and worker-manager relationships using three kinds of interventions -- relational, work process, and structural. Relational interventions include mapping current relationship patterns, fostering psychological safety and coaching
6.1 Defining amplitude Another important property of a sine wave we need to be able to specify is its amplitude. In essence, the amplitude of a sine wave is its size. Unfortunately there are various ways of defining what is meant by the size of a sine wave, and you are likely to come across many of them in material you look at outside this unit. Before I explain what our definition is, it will help matters if we look at what is meant by the average value of a sine wave. Figure 16 shows a sinusoidally a
