This chapter explores the role end user perceptions in information technology adoption from the perspective of innovation diffusion theory. It is based on empirical data from a three-year longitudinal study of an information system implementation in an engineering organization. Data were collected on six different applications and their adoption by four categories of end users: engineering managers, project engineers, professionals, and secretaries. The data indicate a substantial variance… Expand

Technology Adoption in Small Family-Owned Businesses: Accessibility, Perceived Advantage, and Information Technology Literacy
The purpose of the study was to examine the antecedents and impacts of information technology (IT) adoption by small family-owned businesses, using data from the National Family Business Survey. ThisExpand
Resistant groups in enterprise system implementations: a Q-methodology examination
TLDR
This paper is an initial investigation into types of user resistance and the management strategy expectations of users in a mandatory adoption setting and addresses the management strategies preferred by each group. Expand
A review of the predictors, linkages, and biases in IT innovation adoption research
TLDR
The review and analysis of the rich body of research on the adoption and diffusion of IT-based innovations by individuals and organizations can consistently say that generic characteristics of the innovation and characteristic of the organization are strong predictors of IT adoption by both individuals and organization. Expand
Examining user resistance and management strategies in enterprise system implementations
TLDR
The Q-methodology revealed eight naturally-existing types of ES resistance and the management strategies preferred by each respective group, which have implications for both research in the field of user resistance and adoption, and practitioners involved in system implementation. Expand
The role of experience and innovation characteristics in the adoption and continued use of e-learning websites
TLDR
A technology adoption model is developed to predict the users' intention of adoption and their continued use behavior and indicates that perceptions of relative advantage and compatibility are significantly related to Users' intention to use e-learning. Expand
Strategies for Dealing with End-User Resistance
TLDR
The research revealed some unexpected results, for example participants who use one-off and stage-wise training techniques experience more end-user resistance on their projects; and participants whose companies have external IT support in place to support users, also experience more resistance. Expand
Understanding the Hidden Dissatisfaction of Users toward End-User Computing
TLDR
This research examines the effectiveness of the computer systems at the organization, while at the same time measuring the level of end- user satisfaction with the EUC environment, to determine if satisfied and dissatisfied end-users in an organization hold different technological frames of reference towards end-user computing (EUC). Expand
Value of Information Systems and Products: Understanding the Users’ Perspective and Values
ABSTRACT Developers aim at providing value through their systems and products. However, value is not financial only, but depends on usage and users' perceptions of value. In this paper, we clarifyExpand
Rogers’ Innovation Adoption Attributes: A Systematic Review and Synthesis of Existing Research
TLDR
A systematic approach is adopted to review the literature, followed by a meta-analysis of articles on Rogers’ innovation-attributes, which presents findings, limitations, and future research suggestions. Expand
An examination of user resistance in mandatory adoption of enterprise systems
User resistance is an important issue in the implementation of an Enterprise System (ES). However, despite the prevalence of user adoption literature, user resistance literature is scarce. AlthoughExpand

The Adoption of Spreadsheet Software: Testing Innovation Diffusion Theory in the Context of End-User Computing
TLDR
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. Expand
Information Technology Assessment and Adoption: A Field Study
TLDR
The principle finding is the identification of several generic models which reveal the driving forces for new technology adoption and are likely to assist organizations with the challenge of coping with rapidly changing information technology. Expand
Development of an Instrument to Measure the Perceptions of Adopting an Information Technology Innovation
TLDR
The development of an instrument designed to measure the various perceptions that an individual may have of adopting an information technology IT innovation, comprising eight scales which provides a useful tool for the study of the initial adoption and diffusion of innovations. Expand
Information technology innovations: a classification by IT locus of impact and research approach
TLDR
From the analysis, it appears that the classification scheme may be used to provide a clearer understanding of IT innovation diffusion and appears to be most applicable to ITs which have an intra-organizational locus of impact. Expand
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 analysisExpand
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 findingsExpand
Information Technology Diffusion: A Review of Empirical Research
TLDR
A critical review of eighteen empirical studies of information technology adoption and diffusion published during the period 1981-1991 concludes that conclusive results were most likely when the adoption context closely matched the contexts in which classical diffusion theory was developed. Expand
Electronic Data Interchange and Small Organizations: Adoption and Impact of Technology
TLDR
It is suggested that EDI initiators pursue promotional efforts to improve partners' perceptions of EDI benefits, provide financial and technological assistance to partners with low organizational readiness, and carefully select and enact influence strategies to reduce resistance. Expand
