Adoption of Technologies for Virtual Work
A prerequisite for the success of a virtual organization is use of the technology that enables people to communicate and collaborate with one another across time, distance and organizational boundaries. In this chapter, we examine factors that motivate and enable members of the organization to use the information and communications technology (ICT) that underpins the virtual organization. The research was guided by Ajzen’s theory of planned behavior  which, when applied to technology use, enables us to distinguish between four different sets of influences: beliefs about outcomes of use, social influences on use, perceived control of use and external factors that facilitate or obstruct use (see Fig. 8.1.).
