from ToKnowPress

Abstract: Garud and Karnoe [1], discuss about the approach taken up by the Danish and the US wind turbine firms in developing wind energy turbine technologies and the subsequent success of the Danish firms in achieving good market shares in contrast with the US. The authors [1] propose that the technique adopted by the Danish firms and other agents could be viewed as ‘Bricolage’ and that by the US as ‘Breakthrough’. This paper analyses the extent of bricolage and breakthrough definitions and also the other aspects of the Danish and the US wind turbine technology evolutions which during the energy crisis that have not been considered by Garud and Karnoe in their classic paper “Bricolage versus breakthrough: distributed and embedded agency in technology entrepreneurship”.
