Ph.D.: Senior Executives’ Use of Information Technology

Senior Executives’ Use of Information Technology

An extensive study was conducted to investigate the factors that influence the use of Information Technology by senior executives. A large number of senior managers drawn from twenty-one different multinational, European-based companies participated in the field study. The book describes the results of the research study and gives guidelines how to improve Information Technology usage. In the very near future every senior executive will lack the luxury of dedicated staff to answer all her questions. Fortunately, only a few measures are needed for every single executive to become an IT savvy user and, hence, have access to better information leading in turn to more effective decision-making.

Technology Acceptance Model (TAM)

A large number of studies have been conducted using the original Technology Acceptance Model or an extended version. The following list may serve as a point of reference for those interested in the theoretical and practical aspects of TAM. The lists below consists only of renowned journals, magazines, and conferences. The lists has been defined as part of my PhD study on Senior Executives' Use of Information Technology.

PS: Due to the large number of articles that are now being published using TAM, from December 2003 this enumeration will not be maintained anymore.
