Sustainability of competitive advantage: Accumulated experience and discontinuous technological change
A discontinuous technological innovation destroy the existing technological systems and alter the regular competitive balance even in a stable mature industry. In the color TV set industry, a discontinuous technological change from vacuum tubes to transistors and ICs was observed in the 1970's. The effect of a discontinuous change in the color TV set industry is analyzed through comparative study of Japanese and American firms.
