The utility of evidence in the adoption of software engineering ideas depends on several factors. The type of evidence, the adoption context, the attitudes of decision makers, and the size of the idea and its bundle all play a role in the adoption decision. Feasibility check might suffice for small, viral ideas, whereas systematic evidence might be warranted for medium-scale ideas considered for limited-scale but rapid adoption.
