Abstract The technological development process at the company level in a developing country is a complex, longitudinal process and is laden with many a failure. Failures can be either at the adoption, adaptation or innovation stages. This article, based on a field study of 89 manufacturing firms in the Indian capital goods sector, presents technological failures occurring at different stages. Results show that inappropriate selection, lack of focused adoption, and lack of focused adaptation are the primary causes of technological failures.<<ETX>>
