Abstract

This chapter explores the factors of technological adoption in public and private sectors in developing countries. Public organizations are under the control of government to serve the citizens of the country, and private companies are owned and controlled by private individuals or companies and attempt to earn profits. Generally, in developing countries, industry as private firms is smaller than public organizations, and they struggle with lots of challenges in adoption of acquired technologies from foreign owners. In this study, after reviewing existing studies, based on the Technology–Organization–Environment (TOE) framework, a relative comprehensive model is proposed and tested in both types of companies. Afterward, the importance of factors and sub-factors are evaluated by experts' viewpoints. The sample size is 200 selected by simple random sampling method. The results show that organizational factors in public organizations and environmental factors in private companies are very important.
