Alqahtani, Fayez Hussain (2013) The adoption of Web 2.0 within enterprises : employees' perspectives. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This project explores employees’ adoption of Web 2.0 within organisations. It shows that the adoption of Web 2.0 is a challenging and dynamic process that changes over time. The adoption is, also, influenced by a number of interrelated issues including: People Traits, Social Influence, Trust, Technological Attributes, Relevance of Web 2.0, Web 2.0 Maturity, Organisational Support, and Organisational Practice.
