Value refers to “the importance, worth, or usefulness of something” (Oxford Dictionaries 2014c). g. Bharadwaj et al. 1999; Brynjolfsson and Hitt 1998; Chan 2000).

Two important findings were derived. First, three organizational cultures—referred to enhancing, countercultural, and chameleon subculture—shaping the effects of top-down versus bottom-up system implementation were identified.

Third, on a social dimension, IT alignment refers to “the state in which business and IT executives understand and are committed to the business and IT mission, objectives, and plans” (Reich and Benbasat 2000: 81).
