[I was looking for dynamic stability, but I love these diagrams and this perspective – has perhaps informed some of the work I’ve reviewed in #systemchange? Don’t know of Geels otherwise yet, and can’t find accessible copies of these papers yet]
Co-evolutionary and multi-level dynamics in transitions: The transformation of aviation systems and the shift from propeller to turbojet (1930–1970)
Dr. Frank Geels is Assistant Professor at the Department of Technology Management, Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands. Using insights from sociology of technology, innovation studies, history of technology and evolutionary economics, his main research topic is the dynamics of technological transitions and system innovations. His conceptual work is grounded with case studies of historical transitions.
