The Decision Process of Products Under Continuous Innovation: Innovativeness, Consumer Goals and Perceived Innovation

This exploratory study, based on a research with consumers of constant technologically updated products of personal use, aims to explore the relationships between innovativeness and perceived characteristics of the innovation, during the consumer’s decision process. The contribution of such analysis resides in conciliating the broad approach of the decision process, brought by the innovation theory, increasing the knowledge about the adopter’s profile and the way they make their decisions related to innovative products. The study attempts to comprehend the elements involved in a decision making process of innovations and how different adoption behavior leads consumers to use different strategies to achieve their goals during the choice process.
