Abstract

Business competition and growth in the Information age is fuelled by rapid innovation of Information Systems. In turn, business leaders’ demand rapid Information System (IS) adaption that would enable all stakeholders even in the small part of the organization to take advantage of innovation. Therefore, organizations upgrade in order to keep abreast with competitors in the global market. In addition, there is often a lack of commitment to IS change programmes from employees who may even go to the extent of resisting Information Systems change initiatives. In this article the author is investigating the associations and impact of IS change communication and understanding worth of IS change on commitment to IS change in the construction industry using a survey research design. Results indicate that both communicating IS change and understanding of worth of IS change are moderately related to commitment to IS change. Moreover, regression analysis results proved that understanding worth of IS change is a better predictor for commitment to IS change when compared to communicating IS change.
