Abstract

The nature of IT Infusion and the relationship between task redesign, herein termed Work System Reconceptualization and IT Infusion has received scant attention from researchers examining post – innovation adoption behaviors. In this paper, these two constructs are conceptually developed and a model describing their relationship, as well as the impact of Individual Motivation upon IT Infusion, of advanced information technologies is presented. In addition, a modification of the six stage model of innovation implementation is presented to include Work System Reconceptualization as a necessary condition to achieve IT Infusion.
