The paper investigates the impact of the institutional aspects of the innovation-adoption process on the success of its implementation. More specifically, we concentrate on the adoption of five information technologies using a data set from the aerospace and defense industries. We investigate such factors as advocacy, breadth of support, time of adoption, and intra-organizational communications. Several hypotheses are formulated and empirically tested. We find that advocacy by middle management does not have a positive effect on the success of implementation.
