Over the past few years the dotcom saga has affected the world economy and re-defined investment strategies worldwide. This phenomenon has caught the attention of a lot of researchers who are interested in searching for reasons behind this fanatical happening. This paper is designed to create a model that will facilitate the categorization of factors which contributed to the failure of dotcom companies obtained through the literature survey by the authors. The model should help future researchers in their attempt to search for factors that would contribute to the successful adoption of e-business by future companies.
