Why Do We Keep Using A Process Modelling Technique?

Recker, Jan C. (2007) Why Do We Keep Using A Process Modelling Technique? In Toleman, Mark, Cater-Steel, Aileen, & Roberts, Dave (Eds.) 18th Australasian Conference on Information Systems, 5-7 December 2007, Toowoomba, Australia.


In line with the increased popularity of process modelling, a plethora of process modelling techniques has been proposed over time. Yet, only a few have been widely accepted by practitioner communities. This in turn leads to the question of the drivers of continued acceptance (continuance) of process modelling techniques. While researchers have extensively studied continuance and acceptance of information systems, to date, there appears to be no study that has investigated the issue of process modelling technique continuance. This paper addresses this gap by identifying from prior research theories that purport to explain the formation of an intention to continue using a process modelling technique and integrating them in a hybrid research model. We subject the theoretical model to an empirical test with process modellers. The resulting model provides an in-depth understanding of a process modeller’s continuance decision.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
