From the perspective of cultural difference, we are able to produce new, deep, continuing, and rapid insights into people’s lives and needs. As firms internationalize, there is a growing need to understand how cultural factors might affect adoption and utilization of IT in organizations with diverse workforces. Previous studies have examined how beliefs and behaviors related to time can influence how both individual employees and work groups perceive their work, their organization, and each other, and how those perceptions play a role in the productivity of the organization. This study examines the temporal orientation of knowledge workers as an antecedent to their attitudes toward adoption of mobile computing technologies.
