This paper presents a pragmatic approach to understanding the successful adoption of new technology. In order to maintain a competitive global position in an increasingly borderless virtual society, non-profit and for-profit organizations alike face critical problem-solving and decision-making dilemmas whether to convert current enterprise systems to new innovative technologies, to modify, upgrade, or enhance existing technologies, or to maintain the status quo while awaiting the next paradigm shift to a product diffusion even more agile, powerful, all-encompassing, and cutting-edge. Through the lens of a Chief Information Officer, this essay leads the reader through a series of phases, processes, and roles while examining the potential successes and pitfalls of organizational technology selection and implementation. Unique to this paper is the influence of organizational culture upon every element of technology adoption within a 21st century digital social-cultural environment.
