The concept that the innovator is a unique and essential element in the process of technology transfer is advanced. Distinction is drawn between the innovator, the inventor, and the linker categories of individuals. An instrument is developed to identify both the innovator and the linker. The instrument is administered to a set of individuals and the ability of the instrument to differentiate is validated through the results of a series of interviews with a sample of the respondents. Extensive analysis is performed on the results of both the questionnaire and the personal interviews. Conclusions are drawn, and recommendations for additional investigation are provided.
