Brief description Investment in new information and communication technologies (ICT) is a high-risk business. There is poor understanding of why so many ICTs fail in complex organisations This project will develop and test a Multi-method Evaluation Model (MEM) to measure the impact of ICT on organisational processes and outcomes in such organisations. The model addresses the practical complexity and political fragmentation of human practice in determining ICT use and outcomes, by considering organisational and socio-cultural factors. Key factors that predict acceptance, effective use and improvement in processes and outcomes will be identified. The generic predictive model will highlight factors which improve organisational processes and outcomes.
