An OBTG (Organizational - Business - Technological - Governmental) E-business Adoption Model for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises
Despite the increased number of SME adopters of information communication technology for their business, there are limited studies that address the factors affecting SME’s adoption decision. Especially, a theoretical perspective on E-business adoption model for SMEs is required to understand better the SME’s complex adoption decision and, in turn, to provide a realistic means of guidelines for other SME’s for their adoption decision. Thus, the goal of this study is three-fold: i) to review key literature of the factors affecting SME’s adoption decision and then summarize major determinants of key dimensions with definition and literature sources, ii) to propose a theoretical framework of e-business adoption, and iii) to provide an insightful discussion on the driving factors and barriers of the e-business adoption decision by SMEs.
