DAS STEEPLE: the 10 factors to understand the world an innovation is living in

To work out if an innovation is likely to catch on, there are ten key factors to consider. 

  1. Socio-cultural

    1. XYZ

    2. XYZ

  2. Technological

    1. XYZ

    2. XYZ

  3. Economic

    1. XYZ

    2. XYZ

  4. Environmental

    1. XYZ

  5. Political

    1. XYZ

  6. Legal

    1. XYZ

    2. XYZ

  7. Ethical

    1. XYZ

As well as these "traditional" seven, we believe there are another 3 factors to consider:

 

  1. Demographic

    1. XYZ 

  1. Aesthetic

    1. XYZ

  2. Scientific

    1. XYZ

To easily remember these, you can think of them as a big German church, like the one in Cologne or Ulm: DAS STEEPLE.

If these all look favourable, you ought to ask the key five questions of any innovation.
