Abstract: This dissertation proposes and validates three theoretical models of organizational adoption intention of OSS from human capital, social capital and institutional pressures perspectives respectively, which extends the established innovation adoption literature with new insights and provides researchers and managers with a better understanding of organizational innovation adoption behavior. This will be the first study investigating the organizational adoption of OSS in an integrative fashion. Large scale cross-country surveys have been carried out to collect data from organizations in Singapore and China to verify the conceptual models proposed in each of the three studies. Evidence obtained can inform OSS proponents, potential OSS adopter organizations and governments, and provide new perspectives to innovation adoption literature. Insights gained may also inspire new theoretical and empirical advance.
