Organizational Climate for Innovation Implementation and ICT Appropriation: Exploring the Relationship through Discourse Analysis

Tanya Bondarouk, Huub Ruël

Abstract

In this paper we explore the relationship between the organizational climate for innovation and ICT implementation success, defined as the stage in which end-users highly appropriate the newly implemented ICT. This explora- tion is guided by the question: how are organizational climate for innovation implementation and end-user appropriation of ICT related? We carried out a longitudinal case study in a hospital where new ICT had been implemented. We analyzed the organizational climate for innovation and end-user appropriation by means of discourse analysis. This led to the conclusion the relationship be- tween organizational climate and end-user appropriation needs to be redefined.
