Abstract

Rapid advances in hand-held computing and communication capabilities, decreasing cost of mobile devices, and emergence of standards are fuelling the growth of mobile distributed work arrangement (DWA) in business operations. However, mobile DWA is more than a technological arrangement; it is an organizational innovation that could involve structural and administrative changes in the organization for successful deployment and usage. Thus apart from the attributes of the technology, fit between the organization's management style, values, policies and procedures and the demands imposed by the mobile DWA as well as the external environmental context of the organization could be crucial determinants of successful adoption. We investigate this issue in this research. Implications of our findings are discussed.
