Exploring characteristics of GIS Adoption Decisions and Type of Induced Changes in Developing Countries: The Case of Ethiopia

Zerihun Amdemariam Berisso, Walter T. de Vries
2010 Electronic Journal of Information Systems in Developing Countries  
Furthermore, we found that higher level organizational changes, such as changes in power structure and communication lines, would not directly occur only because GIS adoption required so.  ...  We hypothesized that actual GIS adoption decision and induced changes depend on the overall organizational interests and strategic opportunities, which in turn depend on contextual factors.  ...  We viewed these differences in induced changes with respect to attitude changes in different organizational levels.  ...
