Abstract

Technology is seen as a strategic enabler. Organizations implement technology not only to enable their efficiency and effectiveness in carrying out their mission but also to gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace. There are many techniques for determining the economic value of a technology (e.g., ROI). While organizational executives and project teams may utilize such formal techniques in order to select the technologies that are in the economic best interest of the organization, users are not always aligned with the organizational decision. This can lead to user behaviors such as immediate criticism without first giving the technology an objective consideration, project sabotage and other behaviors that are detrimental to a successful technology implementation. Trillions of dollars are spent on consumer and organizational information technology every year. However, many organizations experience costly technology project failures. Previous research analyzed the user adoption process and provided useful insights such as the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). The present research seek to expand on previous bodies of work by proposing a Technology Valuation Model (TVM) that measures the user's perceptions of the organization's technology decision and provides insight into the contributing factors so that the organization may take proactive steps to try to influence such factors in order to better align the user with the organization's technology decision.
