Whilst there is broad agreement that methods can efficiently support development work, new methods often find little acceptance in industrial practice in terms of consistent use. Therefore, this paper aims to identify factors influencing the formation of acceptance that help successfully design and implement methods. To this end, a literature review of acceptance research identifies relevant models for product development and describes their application context, dominant and moderating variables, and explananda. Subsequently, a disciplinary-historical research map for the explanatory power of each acceptance-forming step is derived. Finally, this article deduces possible points of connection and requirements for the specific adaptation of the findings to methods as an object of acceptance.
