User's Perceived IS Slack Resources and their Effects on Innovating with IT

  title={User's Perceived IS Slack Resources and their Effects on Innovating with IT},
  author={Yasser Rahrovani and Alain Pinsonneault},
While adaptation research significantly extends our understanding of how users adapt in reacting to new technology, scant attention has been given to the phenomenon of second-wave, proactive innovations, following the implementation of a disruptive information technology (IT). A proactive user behavior with IT voluntarily steps out of the defined job requirements and creates a new application of IT in the work. This paper conceptualizes a concept called innovating with IT (IwIT) as a post…

The Creativity Model of Age and Innovation with IT: How to Counteract the Effects of Age Stereotyping on User Innovation
The creativity model of age and innovation with IT is advanced, indicating that age differences in user innovation are accounted for by negative age stereotypes and their impacts on creative IT self-efficacy and the model proposes that the indirect effect of age through creative ITSelfefficacy on user innovation can be lessened by contextual factors.
How Do IT Users’ Attributes Influence Innovative Use of IT: The Mediating Role of Individual Absorptive Capacity
This work proposes a model that builds on the absorptive capacity theory and creativity literature to study how individuals’ innovative use of IT is influenced by prior knowledge, absorptive Capacity, and intrinsic motivation as well as their joint interactions.
Innovating in Circles A Qualitative Analysis on Cycles of IT Feature Recombinations for Performative and Creative Outcomes
This paper postulates that innovation only occurs through repeating cycles of recombination processes, and proposes that it is instrumental to run through a phase that does not benefit any task-related outcomes to trigger true creative outcomes.


The contingent effect of personal IT innovativeness and IT self-efficacy on innovative use of complex IT
This study investigates employee users' innovate with IT (IwIT), which is a post-acceptance behaviour that refers to individual users applying IT in novel ways to support their task performance, and proposes a research framework with perceived usefulness and satisfaction as the antecedents of IwIT.
Information Technology and Product/Service Innovation: A Brief Assessment and Some Suggestions for Future Research
A framework is developed that considers information technology’s (IT) dual roles as operand resource and as operant resource and its impact on innovation process and on innovation outcome and reveals the advance that has been made.
Innovate with Complex Information Technologies: A Theoretical Model and Empirical Examination
A model is theoretically developed to understand employees' novel use of CITs and suggests that the ISC model, personal propensity toward IT innovations, and management support jointly nurture employees' creative use of complex technologies.
Innovating Mindfully with Information Technology
Although organizational innovation with information technology is often carefully considered, bandwagon phenomena indicate that much innovative behavior may nevertheless be of the "me too" variety.
Organizational Mechanisms for Enhancing User Innovation in Information Technology
It is argued that deliberate organizational design actions in the form of mechanisms can enhance technology users' propensity to innovate in information technology.
Windows of Opportunity: Temporal Patterns of Technological Adaptation in Organizations
This paper examines the introduction and adaptation of technologies that support productive operations. The authors argue that the process of technological adaptation is not gradual and continuous,
Enacting Integrated Information Technology: A Human Agency Perspective
It is concluded that an integrated technology like ERP, which potentially represents a "hard" constraint on human agency, can be resisted and reinvented in use.
Accidental Innovation: Supporting Valuable Unpredictability in the Creative Process
This paper describes an inductive, grounded theory project, based on 20 case studies, that looks into the conditions under which people who make things keep their work open to accident, the degree to which they rely on accidents in their work, and how they incorporate accidents into their deliberate processes and arranged surroundings.
7 Redesigning Work Design Theories: The Rise of Relational and Proactive Perspectives
Abstract Many scholars assume that the fundamental questions about work design have been answered. However, a global shift from manufacturing economies to service and knowledge economies has
The Disruptive Nature of Information Technology Innovations: The Case of Internet Computing in Systems Development Organizations
IT innovation theory needs to be expanded to analyze IT innovations in kind that exhibit atypical discontinuities in IT innovation behaviors by studying the impact of Internet computing on eight leading-edge systems development organizations in the United States and Finland.
