Abstract: This article presents the findings of a meta-analysis of innovation characteristics that influence the adoption of Information Technology (IT) in organizations. Past studies that examine the determinants of IT innovation adoption have produced inconsistent and contradictory results and deducing a definitive set of attributes for innovation adoption has become impractical. The study aggregated findings of past research on IT adoption using meta-analysis to identify key factors in terms of innovation or technology that influences adoption of IT in organization. Six innovation characteristics most commonly examined by researchers were analysed. The results of our meta-analysis confirmed that relative advantage, compatibility, cost, observability and trialability were strong determinants of IT innovation adoption. However, the study found no association between complexity and IT innovation adoption. The effect of stage of innovation, type of innovation, type of organization and size of organization as four moderating conditions was also examined.
