  journal={Inf. Syst. Res.},
This paper reports on the development of an instrument designed to measure the various perceptions that an individual may have of adopting an information technology IT innovation. This instrument is intended to be a tool for the study of the initial adoption and eventual diffusion of IT innovations within organizations. While the adoption of information technologies by individuals and organizations has been an area of substantial research interest since the early days of computerization… 
Integrating Diffusion of Innovations and Theory of Reasoned Action models to predict utilization of information technology by end-users
Both one’s own attitude and the expectations of others influenced the degree to which one used IT after adoption, and the most significant perceptions that had an effect on degree of use were ease of use, relative advantage and compatibility.
Determinants of the Relative Advantage of a Structured SDM During the Adoption Stage of Implementation
This study attempts to use innovation-related variables created by Moore and Benbasat and Davis to propose a framework useful by project managers in designing innovations that will successfully support the efforts of technology users, useful in designing techniques in the IS development organizational function.
A field study of the adoption of software process innovations by information systems professionals
Results suggest that certain beliefs do play a central role in determining acceptance behavior, and point to external factors such as organizational tenure, prior technical knowledge, training experiences, and perceived job insecurity that have significant effects on these beliefs.
Why Isn't Everyone an Early Adopter?
This research will compare how innovation characteristics and TPB components are perceived by both early and late adopters, and investigates late adopter’s perceptions at the time of the innovation introduction and thetime of actual adoption to determine which, if any, innovation perceptions have changed.
Understanding the Role of Individual Innovativeness in the Acceptance of IT-Based Innovations: Comparative Analyses of Models and Measures
A new measure of adopter category innovativeness (ACI) is developed and compared its effectiveness with the existing measure of personal innovateativeness in IT (PIIT) and results consistently show that individual innov ativeness is a direct determinant of the innovation characteristics.
Towards a Conceptual Model of Broadband Diffusion
A conceptual model is introduced that integrates factors from different technology adoption models to study home technology diffusion from a consumer perspective and evaluates the flexibility of various models for studying technology adoption issues.
Managerial Perceptions of E-Government Adoption by State Agencies
This paper examines social and technical factors that influence the acceptance of E-government technologies by public organizations. In regards to public organizations, IT acceptance is defined as
Technology innovation diffusion at the University of Botswana: A comparative literature survey
The purpose of this study was to identify factors that influence adoption and diffusion of information and communication technology in developing countries through a thorough review of past and
Investigating the Role of Innovation Attributes in the Adoption, Rejection, and Discontinued Use of Open Source Software for Development
Drawing on technology adoption research, particularly diffusion of innovations, this article analyzes organizational adoption decisions of a new ICT by organizations in Nairobi, Kenya. Through a


The Adoption of Spreadsheet Software: Testing Innovation Diffusion Theory in the Context of End-User Computing
Findings supported hypotheses that earlier adopters of spreadsheet software were younger, more highly educated, more attuned to mass media, more involved in interpersonal communication, and more likely to be opinion leaders, suggesting that information technology diffusion is different from other diffusion phenomena.
Diffusion of Innovations
Diffusion is the process by which an innovation is communicated through certain channels over time among the members of a social system by concerned with the spread of messages that are perceived as new ideal.
Managerial influence in the implementation of new technology
In the implementation of an organizational innovation, managers are usually presumed to influence the extent to which the innovation is adopted and used by their subordinates. However, the findings
The perceived usefulness of information is an important construct for the design of management information systems. Yet an examination of existing measures of perceived usefulness shows that the
Innovation characteristics and innovation adoption-implementation: A meta-analysis of findings
A review and meta-analysis was performed of seventy-five articles concerned with innovation characteristics and their relationship to innovation adoption and implementation. One part of the analysis
User Acceptance of Computer Technology: A Comparison of Two Theoretical Models
Computer systems cannot improve organizational performance if they aren't used. Unfortunately, resistance to end-user systems by managers and professionals is a widespread problem. To better predict,
Perceived Usefulness, Perceived Ease of Use, and User Acceptance of Information Technology
Regression analyses suggest that perceived ease of use may actually be a causal antecdent to perceived usefulness, as opposed to a parallel, direct determinant of system usage.
The Measurement of End-User Computing Satisfaction
An instrument which merges ease of use and information product items to measure the satisfaction of users who directly interact with the computer for a specific application is reported on.
Implementation Characteristics of Organizational Innovations
Within an organization, individuals' innovation responses are highly influenced by the way that implementation is managed. However, managers operate within parameters set by the technology's
Cognitive Style as a Basis for MIS and DSS Designs: Much ADO About Nothing?
It is commonly believed that the user's cognitive style should be considered in the design of Management Information Systems and Decision Support Systems. In contrast, an examination of the
