A model proposed by Schultz, Ginzberg & Lucas (1984) that integrates thefactor and process approaches to implementation was field tested with datafrom a generalized decision support system. Significant associations werefound between manager acceptance and user perceptions of support, userpersonal stake and system use. The results suggest that voluntary andnon-voluntary use of a system have different precursors and may be encouragedin different ways. Although the overall model receives only partial support,the results of the study suggest approaches for further testing of networkmodels of implementation.
