Episode 64 – Riding the Technology Adoption Life Cycle Curve in MedTech with Geoffrey Moore, Author, Crossing the Chasm

This is a special episode.  Our guest today is Geoffrey Moore, Author of Crossing The Chasm: Marketing and Selling Disruptive Products to Mainstream Customers which is on Inc. Magazines list of top 10 Marketing Books of All time.  He has written several other books on marketing relative to disruptive technologies.  Geoff is highly regarded throughout the high-tech world. Today, Geoff will take us on a tour of the Technology Adoption Life Cycle and then we dive into details of early market challenges and then the ultimate challenge of crossing the chasm into the mainstream market. We talk about disruptive technologies, early adopters, key opinion leaders, signs you are approaching the chasm, the pragmatists on the other side of the chasm, pragmatists in pain, the bowling alley, the tornado, mistakes to avoid and much much more. By the way, in our discussion the terms visionary and early adopter are interchangeable.  Also, the terms pragmatists and early majority are also interchangeable.  Everyone involved in leading a MedTech company and marketing and sales will learn a lot from this episode.

You will hear me refer to several attendees to this event. Three countries are represented. The Netherlands, the Czech Republic and the United States.  These people are all members of the MedTech Leaders community.  I always set up interviews as live virtual events so members can attend.  If you want to learn more about the community, go to medtechleaders.net.
