Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the changing nature of the relationship between intention and usage over time. Our main argument is that as individuals get into the habit of continuously using a system, the predictive power of intention will be diluted. Consequently, the more usage is performed out of habit, the less cognitive planning is involved. In other words, as habit of using an IS increases, the relationship between intention and usage weakens. This paper describes the theory bases, the research method, as well as the potential contribution of this work-in-progress.
