Abstract

This paper tests whether firms exhibit a learning curve even when experiencing unusual events, in this study radical technological changes in product technology. Monitoring the response time to three such changes taking place over a 22-year period in the tennis racket industry, data shows that firms do increase the speed at which they react to such a change by either launching a copy-cat product or including the new technology into their products, as their experience with such changes increases.
