The gap between the recognition of the importance of Object-Oriented Technologies (OOT) and their wide adoption is still wide. While the practitioner's press has endorsed the common view that the opportunities are ripe for firms adopting the object paradigm, both university higher education systems and the industrial sectors have been slow to fully endorse the shift. The following paper will outline some of the most obvious reasons for the slow transition, locate some of the potential venues for remedy, and highlight a possible path for adoption. The commonly mentioned object-oriented techniques are composed of an eclectic set of techniques, methods, and tools. The short paper is intended to outline their convergence toward a wide transition to objects.
