Adoption and Diffusion of IT (SIG ADIT)

The extant literature on adoption and diffusion has improved our understanding of how IT is utilized by individuals, groups, and organizations and its wanted and unwanted consequences. In turn, we now have rich insights into relevant topics such as digital innovation, digital business models, and factors that affect IT implementation, to name a few. With the accelerating pace of digital transformation in many organizations and societies and the fundamental role of IT systems and services in it, as has been witnessed during COVID-19 pandemic, there is still much to learn about the diffusion and adoption of IT. We need to investigate the potential of new digital innovations, while also examining downsides of adoption and diffusion of IT. Issues such as IS misuse, obsessive addiction, technostress, information overload, and new digital divides to name a few, all have become important areas to investigate. This track is a forum for high quality research that can theoretically and/or practically provide valuable insights into the adoption and diffusion of digital innovations at the individual, group, organizational, and societal levels. This includes the application of all types of research methodologies.

Track Chairs:
Andreas Eckhardt, University of Innsbruck
Hamed Qahri Saremi, DePaul University
Jean-Grégoire Bernard, Victoria University of Wellington
