In this paper we focus on large-scale IS implementation using the lens of absorptive capacity. Our case study concentrates on the double loop learning process that occurs over the implementation phase of ERP which we depict as a series of learning cycles. From this perspective, ERP implementation is best viewed not as a one-time process but rather as a(More)
This commentary paper aims to highlight issues associated with the supposed ability to transfer knowledge across networks. In response to the paper ‘‘Risks in Organizational Networks: An Exploratory Framework’’, (Trkman and Desouza, this issue, pp. XXX–XXX), we argue that the taken-for-granted assumption that knowledge is transferrable represents a risk in(More)
We review the IS strategizing literature and highlight its main strengths and weaknesses. Strengths include an account given to the relevance of tensions between planned and executed strategy, and associated tradeoffs such as rigidity and flexibility, formal and informal strategizing and the exploitation of static resources vis à vis the exploration of(More)
The potential, value, and relevance of information and communication technologies (ICTs) is no longer debatable. Past research, however, highlights differences in their availability in developed and developing countries. This phenomenon is known as the digital divide (Norris, 2001; Warschauer, 2004, Pick and Sarkar, 2015). Of the approximately 200 nations(More)
Past research on the broadband digital divide indicates a widening divide in which developing countries are falling further behind countries in the developed world. In response to this problem, the World Bank has advocated a “mobile first” strategy for developing countries. Unfortunately, there is little understanding of what determines mobile broadband(More)
In this paper we focus on the iterative process that occurs within the implementation phase of an ERP which we depict as a series of learning cycles: managers make decisions, identify mistakes, and accumulate experience (lessons learned). We argue that ERP development is a process of continuous evolution with no final design being possible or warranted.(More)
