    Project Description

    Interorganisational systems (IOS), which span organisational boundaries, are essential for effective supply chain management. It is important for Australian industry competitiveness that firms adopting IOS achieve the promised benefits. However, previous research is inconclusive about the determinants of IOS benefits. The CIs recently proposed a theory of IOS adoption which asserts that the motives organisations form for adopting IOS largely determine the implementation process and the benefits they receive. This project will test that theory in different industries and extend it to adoption of other information technologies. The project will allow evidence-based recommendations for effective implementation practice to be developed.
