Abstract: This thesis examines the strategic decision-making process through which organizational decision-makers decide upon the adoption of RFID technology. RFID adoption is framed as an IT investment project that is amenable to applying real options reasoning by decision-makers. Three different studies identify the various institutional, organizational and individual factors that affect adoption decision-making by helping managers recognize the real options from RFID technology, and propose research models delineating the relationship between these factors, the recognition of real options, and their effect on adoption decision. A large scale sample survey of organizational decision-makers in manufacturing and logistics sector is carried out to validate the research models. The studies contribute towards theory building in the area of real options analysis in IT innovation adoption, and in understanding the strategic decision-making process in IT innovation adoption. They also help in identifying organizational and individual profiles that can result in more effective IT investment decision-making.
