Explaining usage of process modeling grammars : comparing three theoretical models in the study of two grammars
Recker, Jan C. (2010) Explaining usage of process modeling grammars : comparing three theoretical models in the study of two grammars. Information & Management, 47(5-6), pp. 316-324.
Our objective was to determine the factors that lead users to continue working with process modeling grammars after their initial adoption. We examined the explanatory power of three theoretical models of IT usage by applying them to two popular process modeling grammars. We found that a hybrid model of technology acceptance and expectation-confirmation best explained user intentions to continue using the grammars. We examined differences in the model results, and used them to provide three contributions. First, the study confirmed the applicability of IT usage models to the domain of process modeling. Second, we discovered that differences in continued usage intentions depended on the grammar type instead of the user characteristics. Third, we suggest implications and practice.
