Effectiveness of Using Pluralist Methodology in Information System Adoption Studies Position Paper: IS Qualitative - Quantitative Method
MetadataShow full item record
Information Systems Adoption is a multi-faceted and complex investigation area that can cross disciplinary boundaries, combine multiple research methods and consider different methodological approaches to analyse emerging IS Adoption phenomena. In order to generate valuable and reliable outcomes a research methodology has to be carefully determined. A persistent concern of the IS discipline is choosing which research design and methodology is most appropriate for a particular study. This article uses the research into "Factors Affecting Information System Adoption in Public Organizations in Latin American Countries: The Case for Ecuador" as a practical illustration of the effective use of a pluralist methodology to investigate the reality of IS adoption in local government institutions. Moreover, new practical studies, evidencing that results obtained from a pluralistic approach can be richer and more reliable than one method alone, will contribute to the quality and success of IS adoption scholarly research.
