Within systemic innovation the main types of innovation are incremental, modular, architectural and radical (Henderson and Clark 1990). Incremental innovation involves small changes that have the main components reinforced. Modular innovation has the components overturned in the architectural system without affecting the overall system architecture. Radical innovation involves major changes with the components and architecture of the system altered. Architectural innovation changes the linkages between the systems to reconfigure the overall structure (Deak and Peredy 2015).
