Abstract
When innovative products and services are launched to the market, many consumers initially resist adopting them, even if the innovation is likely to enhance their life quality. Explanations for this behavior can also be found in specific personality traits and in general pitfalls of human decision-making. We believe that decision support systems (DSS) can help alleviate such innovation resistance. We propose a DSS design that addresses innovation resistance to complex innovations on an individual’s cognitive level. An experimental study will be conducted to test the influence of different DSS modifications on the perception and selection of complex innovations. We aim to identify levers for reducing innovation resistance and to derive DSS design implications. \
