Although information system researchers have long recognized the possibility for collective-level information system use patterns and outcomes to emerge from individual-level IT use behavior, few have empirical the key factors involved in this individual-collective innovative use process. This study builds a research model drawing on the concepts to investigate how between individual innovative use in group influences collective innovative use of enterprise systems. And this study argues that collective learning plays the role of interactive processing among individuals, such that it can mediate the effect of individual innovative use on collective innovative use. To test the research hypotheses, a field study is conducted on 200 users in 55 work group of different enterprise in China. The results indicated that individual innovative use in group has an effect on collective innovative use, and the effect of individual innovative use on collective innovative use are mediated by collective learning.
