Method: In the selection of research participants in this study, a sample was extracted by adopting purpose-ful sampling, snowball sampling, which is one of the non-probability of artificially sampling the subjects who can contribute to the development of the theory of the research. The research procedure went through five steps: selection of research questions, selection of research participants and data collection, analysis of data, interpretation of data, and report of research results. A theoretical sample was extracted through the proce-dures of open coding, axial coding, and selective coding to find key categories and classify them by type. Results: In the process of naming concepts and confirming the attributes and dimensions of categories through continuous questioning and comparative analysis based on data obtained from participants, 95 con-cepts, 37 subcategories, and 21 categories were identified. Accordingly, with regard to the attitude of ac-ceptance and the search for change, there are four types in classification such as ‘innovators who are active in change, the ‘early majority who pursues economic benefits first, and the ‘late majority’ who do not ignore the innovation itself but join late, and ‘laggards , which ignore change or innovation itself.
