Abstract

Adding to the debate regarding use of the disconfirmation approach in assessment of IS effectiveness, this chapter explores the role that expectations play in defining stakeholders’ evaluations.

Since expectations appear to have some impact, what this paper has done is raise a number of questions requiring further exploration.
