Proceedings of JAIS Theory Development Workshop
The purpose of this paper is to develop practical theory for predicting whether different categories of strategic IT experiments â€“ trials of innovative information technologies within established organizations â€“ lead to varying degrees of organizational renewal. A new framework of categories of strategic IT experiments is developed. We propose that the most innovative strategic IT experiments may have theleast influence on organizational renewal while less innovative experiments have a greater influence. Longitudinal case studies of three organizations illustrate the framework.
