Notes
  • This paper disseminates the findings from a study into the factors impacting technological innovation adoption and diffusion specific to the deployment of electronic-commerce strategies within professional service sector SMEs in Ireland. Confirmatory factor analysis was performed and seven factors relating to a firm's external/​internal environment were found to underpin adoption. These are: electronic-commerce capability; willingness to change/​rate of response to new technologies; technological opportunity recognition; customer orientation; sensitivity to competitive/​customer environments; perceptions of technology feasibility; and e-skills development mechanisms. t-tests revealed differences between adopters and non-adopters, and forward stepwise logistic regression is used to assess the extent to which these seven factors actually predict electronic-commerce adoption. It was found that electronic-commerce capability and the willingness to change/​rate of response to new technologies are the two most important factors affecting adoption behaviours.
