14-03 - Adoption and Diffusion


Location: Fürstenberghaus
Address: Domplatz 20-22 48143 Münster Germany
Room: F4
Date: 28 May 13:30 - 15:30


A quarter-century after the publication of one of the most prominent models in Information Systems (IS) adoption and diffusion research, this track focuses on a better understanding of various factors leading to diverse behavioral responses such that some IS and information and communication technologies (ICT) are successfully adopted while others are rejected. Although this field of study is considered to be one of the more mature research areas within the IS discipline, constantly emerging technologies, contexts of use, and stakeholder groups ensure that the area provides a lot of potential for exciting and fruitful investigation. Indeed, the emergence of such new technologies, contexts, and users raises the issue of whether previous research findings remain applicable to these new circumstances or whether new theoretical explanations are required. Especially in terms of methodologies, more approaches addressing these new circumstances and capturing all nuances in adoption decision making are clearly needed. Furthermore, new research approaches on collecting (i.e. experiments, action research, mixed methods, longitudinal approaches) and analyzing data (i.e. latent growth models, agent based modeling, data mining) may provide a significant step towards a better understanding of these factors driving and inhibiting IS usage. The aim of the track therefore is to provide a common platform for the presentation and discussion of original research into issues surrounding IS/ICT adoption, discontinuation, and rejection from various stakeholder group perspectives and at societal, organizational, and individual level. Unique papers with great ideas and novel contributions will be fast-tracked to a journal.

The high e-mail amounts that individuals sent back and forth each day are one of the major causes for information overload. Knowledge seems to help overcoming information overload. However, it is not clear which knowledge areas are helpful. Therefore, we examine knowledge areas supporting the encoding and decoding of e-mails by investigating cognitive processes that allow knowledge building to avo ... More

Previous information systems (IS) research has paid little attention to the determinants of users’ discontinuance and the consequences of that behaviour. This study investigates the influence of different discontinuance reasons on post-discontinuance word-of-mouth (WOM) communication in the context of mobile location-based services (LBS). Based on existing literature, a theoretical framework is ... More

Since van der Heijden (2004) it is widely accepted that hedonic and utilitarian information systems underlie different adoption mechanisms. Within this research, we compare two homogenous user groups and their adoption behaviors with respect to e-commerce websites. The groups thereby differ only in the fact that one of them consists of individuals suffering from mobility impairment. Consistent wit ... More

Consumerization of information technology (IT) refers to consumer technologies finding their way into enterprises. In this context, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) describes the phenomenon of privately-owned mobile devices being brought into organizations. While research on the general topic is scarce, initial studies have identified personal innovativeness in IT as one important driver for this beha ... More
