本研究結合歷史資料研究與個案研究法,做為基本研究策略。針對正在發展與演化結果尚未明朗的特性,選擇WiMAX 與LTE無線通訊技術做為個案研究對象。以劃分歷史關鍵時間點,並發展描述個案分析的方式,分別檢驗研究架構與理論命題。
Technology changes affect the rules and beliefs that have been well accepted by a community or society. When market and product uncertainties are high, not only technological knowledge but the social, economic and political environment will determine the evolution result of technological change. Therefore, how firms react for the change has become a critical managerial issue for firms’ survival.
By scheduling the timeline of academic research development and dividing past related literatures into six schools, it helps to understand the evolution of academic research. Moreover, the research develops conceptual framework to exam the causal relationship between technological change and technological regime. Three theoretical propositions implies that changes in scientific paradigm affect the usage of technology, and the technologies will interact with a specific environment as technological regime that determine the evolution result.
This research adopts history and case study as research method strategies. Cases of WiMAX and LTE are characterized in developing wireless technologies and the evolution result is ambiguous. It fits the research objectives and questions for empirically examine the theoretical propositions.
The empirical results indicate that the conceptual framework and theoretical propositions are sound. Changes in scientific paradigm influence usage of technologies. It will interact with technological regime that determines evolution result. The dimensions of technological regime and results of scenario planning can be the reference for mangers in practical.
