Title: The Embeddedness of Technological Systems
Authors: Garud, Raghu
Jain, Sanjay
Issue Date: Dec-1997
Publisher: Stern School of Business, New York University
Series/Report no.: IS-97-31
Abstract: Technological systems are shaped both by forces arising from the technical environment of product markets and those arising from the institutional environment of compatibility standards. We explore how it might be possible for standards to simultaneously enable activities in the technical environment and not constrain them. Such a scenario is possible when the technical environment is not completely embedded in the standards that shape them. We characterize such technological systems as being "just" embedded.
