  9. Chapter 8: Hard Core - overview Factors affecting success come from different sources Managerial influences Market influences Relative advantage Doherty & Ellis-Chadwick, [1999, 2003, 2010.] Fiona Ellis-Chadwick

  10. Chapter 9: Hard Core – detail 1 Managerial Influences Positive influences. This group of factors (1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 7) is characterised by a fairly steady rise in mean values from ‘nonadopters’ to the adoption of an ‘active website’. The implication of this pattern is that these six factors all exert a positive influence on an organisation’s adoption of the Internet. Consequently, as an organisation makes progress in the adoption of an ‘active website’, there is an increasing recognition of the importance and influence of factors, such as the availability of an appropriate ‘infrastructure and development capability’ and an ‘Internet strategy’. Negative influences.Two of the factors, ‘cost of Internet trading’ and ‘consumer sensitivity’ are exerting a negative influence. It can be seen that there is a steady decline in mean values from ‘nonadopters’ to ‘active website’. The implication of this pattern is that both these factors have strongly influenced the ‘nonadopters’ to refrain from investing, but the influence of the cost of Internet trading and consumer sensitivity gradually weakens as an organisation progresses to an ‘active website’. Variable influences. One of the nine significant factors, ‘Internet communications’, displays a distinctly different pattern to the others. While its influence rises steadily from the ‘nonadopter’ to the ‘active planning’ phase, it then starts to decline as the organisation progresses through ‘active development’ to ‘interactive website’. The implication of this is that while the Internet’s ability to facilitate communications strongly influences an organisation to commence an Internet project, once the project is underway, its perceived importance gradually diminishes. Strategy Leadership style Resources Capabilities Targeting, segmentation and positioning strategy • + = leads to success • = leads to failure • +/- = unpredictable outcome Fiona Ellis-Chadwick

  11. Chapter 10 : Hard Core – detail 2 Market influences: Digital market place Customer behaviour/experiences Competition – local and global Pace of technological change Nick Wheeler founder of Charles Tyrwhitt Fiona Ellis-Chadwick
