Organizational adoption

Lately, I have been thinking about the adoption of technologies by organizations.

Fred Wilson’s blog post raised related issues for consumers and stimulated a lively discussion about what characteristics are important to adoption. My interest is similar for organizations, but is more related to the channels of communication used for this purpose then in the characteristics which determine selection.

How does your organization discover, evaluate and select new technologies?

And do you expect them to be the best choice, or is it enough that benefits have been demonstrated, or even that they just do something useful?

What services would assist you with this?
