This research focuses on the cyclic nature of innovation and the number of events that occur during these innovation cycles. A multiple case methodology was undertaken where commercialisation and technological innovation paths were mapped and events counted. To test for the differences in the number of events during self-reinforcing periods versus reactive periods, a multiway frequency analysis was used. Our results indicate that significantly more events were required for self-reinforcing periods and that the type of innovation case was also an important discriminator
