Institutional entrepreneurs that introduce a technological
to a highly institutionalized field often struggle and strive for legitimacy.
While it is known that these institutional entrepreneurs need support from
multiple external actors in order to succeed, it is the incumbents’ response
behavior to the technological discontinuity that has been neglected as an
important factor of the legitimation process. In this article I describe how
three different response types namely adopting, defending, and ignoring,
determine the course of the legitimation. I argue that incumbent response
is able not only to hinder but also to enhance the legitimation process of
the institutional entrepreneur and its technological discontinuity.
