Conference Theme

Although significant progress has been made, aided by academic colloquia such as IFIP WG8.6, technological innovation continues to be problematic for many organisations, with the rate of failure of IS/IT projects remaining stubbornly high.

It is clearly important to understand why some innovation efforts are successful while others fail – why the same technology that “diffuses” in one context meets only resistance and rejection in others!

The aim of this conference is to help move forward our understanding of the organisational dynamics of technology-based innovation by diversifying the research agenda in three general areas: theoretical perspectives, methodologies, and organisational sectors.
