HCI is in business - Focusing on organizational tasks and management

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Human computer interaction, as a subfield of the academic field of management information systems (MIS) has been concerned with the process and outcomes of users interacting with computers to perform organizational tasks such as data entry, business transactions, decision making or office work. Several general theories or models of HCI such as the Technology Acceptance Model have emerged that have an influence on researches on cognitive style. TAM explains the user's decision to adopt a system with implicit reference to task and technology. A user's intention to use a system can be determined by its perceived usefulness and ease of use, which may both be influenced by situational, organizational, and personal factors. Researches in the area of human computer interaction are to be continued with the use of organizational and managerial theories to better understand the link between user, computer, and task.
