13 Pages Posted: 25 Oct 2006
Enterprise Resource Planning systems (ERPs) often fail to deliver the organisational benefits anticipated.

While this framework provides important insights into the impact of ERPs, the case also highlights the significance of organisational factors in shaping how users enact technology at work.
