The authors focus on NPA signals, which they define as new product announcements in advance of market introduction. They develop a set of hypotheses regarding incumbent reactions to NPA signals and test them in a field study among managers in the United States and the United Kingdom. The authors' findings provide a characterization of the factors affecting the likelihood of competitive response to NPA signals and suggest a set of managerial implications.
