Description

This research seeks to understand the impact of a user’s goal orientations as antecedents of workplace advice ties which have been shown to be an effective support structure for the implementation of enterprise systems (Sykes 2015). Building upon prior work, we seek to show, in the context of an ES implementation, how an individual’s goal-orientation affects their advice ties, and their use of the system. The proposed model was tested in a field study conducted in the HR business unit of a large multinational telecommunications organization over the course of a year (N=161). Results indicate that different goal orientations have differing impacts on advice networks and system use. This study has both theoretical and practical implications.
