Zoe Zwiebelmann Maastricht University IM Session 3 5. DISCUSSION 5.1 MAIN RESULTS AND FINDINGS 1) concept of IT empowerment has found empirical support: all four dimensions have fundamental facts that additively describe what it means to experience IT empowerment 2) IT empowerment is predictor of consumer IT usage within orgas: explains large proportion of variance in level of consumer IT usage; significant contribution as driver that stands behind IT consumerisation phenomenon; indicates shift in power from IT department toward individual 3) IT empowerment holds for variety of permission/organisational mandates: in contexts where usage of consumer IT is (a) allowed, (b) tolerated, (c) prohibited robustness might indicate that importance between mandatory and voluntary usage is waning = usage policies might not have effect most explanatory power: in organisations where IT is tolerated (no clear policy/rules about consumer IT exist) followed by allowed/permitted, least strong in prohibited settings 5.2 INNOVATION THROUGH CONSUMERISATION Prosumer: person whose inputs of time, effort and skill are viewed as value creation activities undertaken by consumer that result in production of products they eventually consume and that become their consumption experience • IT consumerisation might be able to instill culture of innovation 5.3 FUTURE RESEARCH • examine IT empowerment within broader context of variables, particularly in innovative behaviour • look at relationship between consumer IT usage and IT empowerment more closely by segmenting phases of pre- and post-adoption 6. CONCLUSION • IT empowerment is central in explaining level of consumer IT usage behaviour • IT empowerment leads to more consumer IT usage in all organisational contexts (where it is allowed, tolerated, prohibited) • technologically empowering employees by virtue of their perceived competence, self- determination, meaning they place on technology and impact technology has on their job will allows orgas to better harness benefits of consumer IT usage

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
