Information technology is being increasingly used to support new organizational forms that stress distributed collaborative work such as virtual organizations and dynamic network organizations. In particular, telecommunications technology is being used to support organizations where two or more organizations or organizational units are required to collaboratively work on a project. Recent advances in telecommunications technology has made the support of collaborative work using Internet based software possible. This study assesses the factors that may influence the adoption of Internet based collaboration software by distributed teams. A research model depicting the potential factors that may influence the adoption of Internet based collaboration software by distributed teams to perform collaborative work is presented. The methodology is experimental in nature with geographically distributed participants carrying out collaborative teamwork using Internet based collaborative work software. The results of the study will be presented at the convention
