F need to balance efficiency gains obtained through exploiting existing knowledge assets with long-term competitive viability achieved through exploring new knowledge resources. Because the use of knowledge management systems (KMSs) continues to expand, understanding how these systems affect exploration and exploitation practices at the individual level is(More)
Today’s complex information systems can be used to varying degrees by individuals. Information system infusion captures the degree to which the system is used deeply, or to its fullest extent, for improving organizational and individual performance. Theory suggests that infusion at the individual level depends on user adaptation to an information system;(More)

Understanding knowledge transfer in computer mediated contexts is becoming essential given that organizations are spread more and more globally. In this article, the authors adopt elaboration likelihood theory to investigate knowledge transfer processes in a Knowledge Management System (KMS).

Understanding knowledge transfer using computer-mediated context is becoming essential given that organizations are spread more and more globally. In this paper, we adopt elaboration likelihood theory to investigate knowledge transfer processes in a Knowledge Management System (KMS). We report the results of an exploratory experiment conducted to examine(More)
